You’ll be seeing a lot of news coming out of the CES show in Las Vegas this week, particularly about gateways, so we may as well start with the “A”s. IPTV/OTT provider Amino Communications will be showing what it claims is the world’s first hybrid/OTT media gateway powered by Intel’s next-gen 32nm Intel Atom SoC for consumer electronics at home and in the enterprise.? ?
Amino says its “Freedom Live” media gateway combines dual core processing power with new enhanced transcoding and encoding capabilities with multi-screen distribution to deliver content to TVs, smartphones and tablets around the home.
Amino also will showcase a new feature it says delivers high-definition video calling via the TV set. To do this, the gateway includes a USB3 high-speed data port that allows users to plug in low-cost HD Webcams to enjoy high-def video calling. In addition, a dual Ethernet switch will enable other devices – including existing pay-TV set-top boxes – to connect to the open Internet.?
