Didn’t we say “gateway” is the new 2012 buzzword? New from SeaChange International is the Nucleus Hybrid Gateway software that reportedly supports cable operators’ transitions from QAM to IP video, thus allowing them to offer their customers multi-screen media sharing, whole-home DVR, access to apps and OTT content using, for example, smartphones as remotes.  

The software has two main components. First, its Nucleus Engine:

>> Provides full control over STB functionality including channel changes, VOD/DVR playback and trick mode;
>> Enables media sharing throughout home via DLNA (photos, audio/MP3, video files, recorded assets); and
>> Includes a back-end proxy to cache program event information and to create a faster, more enjoyable subscriber experience

Second, its Presentation Manager:
>> Handles the graphical components of the interface and conducts HTML5/JavaScript rendering;
>> Supports next-gen user interfaces (Nitro) and delivers consistent experience across platforms; and
>> Supports applications, widgets, OTT and personal content from a variety of third-party devices

SeaChange Nucleus also can support several configurations within the home, including a number of hybrid gateways containing multiple tuners for video, DOCSIS 3.0 and for OTT content while supporting MoCA, Ethernet and Wi-Fi interfaces.
