In its booth (#1255) at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, ActiveVideo will unveil its CloudTV H5 IP™ product that optimizes the delivery of cloud-based content in an IP environment. Leveraging ActiveVideo’s experience with managed and unmanaged networks, CloudTV H5 IP adds important features such as virtualization, full H.264 support and comprehensive 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. 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.
Like its QAM counterparts, CloudTV H5 IP utilizes highly-optimized HTML5 browser technology running in remote servers to execute and render complete user experiences in the cloud. The fully-formed user experience is then streamed to the user’s device in a bandwidth-efficient adaptive bit rate video stream. Subscribers control the experience by using their remote controls to send key presses to the remote browser, 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.
This innovative, patented technology makes it possible to create and deliver pixel-accurate applications and user experiences across any digital set top box or connected device. In-home device capabilities are irrelevant to the application designer because the application is fully executed and rendered on the cloud-based server, making it possible to create complex animations and functionality without worrying about device capability. CloudTV H5 IP can render and stream to thousands of users from a single cloud-based server.
