At this week’s Cable Show in Boston (ending today), ActiveVideo Networks unveiled its CloudTV H5 IP product it says “optimizes the delivery of cloud-based content in an IP environment.”

CloudTV H5 IP features virtualization, full H.264 support and bandwidth management to its CloudTV HTML5 rendering platform “to provide a highly flexible, highly scalable platform capable of delivering a rich user experience with low latency to any connected device,” the company says. “Integrating easily with other cloud-based cable initiatives such as network DVR and cloud-based guides, the CloudTV H5 IP platform is an important part of the emerging IP ecosystem.” ??

How it works: CloudTV H5 IP uses HTML5 browser technology running in remote servers to execute and render user experiences in the cloud. The “fully formed” user experience then is streamed to the user’s device in a bandwidth-efficient adaptive bit rate video stream. Subscribers can use their remote controls to send key presses to the remote browser, thus controlling the application in the same way as they would if it were running locally. “Surprisingly, the latency between a customer key press and the UI response is minimal,” ActiveVideo notes.  ?

CloudTV is available on approximately screens globally with Cablevision Systems, Oceanic Time Warner Cable and other operators as well as on Philips-brand NetTVs.
