ActiveVideo Networks has expanded its relationship with TAG Networks to extend enhanced-gaming experiences to broadband-connected CE devices.? ?The combined solution, which leverages TAG Networks’ scalability with ActiveVideo’s ability to deliver Web-based content as a single MPEG stream, brings brand-name games to any connected device or digital set-top box. The solution is being demonstrated in the ActiveVideo suite at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show.?
The CE integration builds on the existing cable partnership between TAG Networks and ActiveVideo, as well as on recent milestones by both companies: TAG Networks recently announced that it established an industry record for streaming games density and scalability by supporting 2,000 concurrent MPEG game streams at 1.25Mbps with a single off-the-shelf 1RU dual quad-core server, while ActiveVideo demonstrated the integration of the ActiveVideo client with Blu-ray Disc middleware developed by Videon Central at the Intel Developer Forum.
