Pace has revealed an advanced multi-room DVR solution – Home Content Sharing (HCS). Pace’s HCS, which utilizes centralized storage to connect multiple high definition (HD) set-top boxes within the home, is integrated with Rovi’s Interactive Program Guide (IPG) and Rovi’s Connected Platform.
HCS delivers full dual tuner HD-DVR functionality to each connected TV in the home. The product is built around a single network attached storage device that provides centralized storage and enables multiple non-DVR set-top boxes in the home to access and share recorded content. Rovi’s IPG provides a graphical interface for the HCS solution.
The HCS can distribute nine simultaneous HD streams throughout the home. Subscribers will be able to concurrently record six HD programs while maintaining full trick mode capability. The HCS also offers advanced DVR features including a folder system, a bulk delete tool, and the ability to bookmark playback to resume in another room.
