ViXS Systems Inc. and Morega Systems Inc. announced a partnership to enable access and streaming of user-generated content to and from multiple devices within the home.
Morega’s portability technologies will be integrated with ViXS’ XCode media processors and embedded into consumer electronics products, set-top boxes, network attached storage (NAS) devices and multimedia gateways, the companies say.
The integrated solution will allow individuals to watch video content across multiple screens, with the ability to stream, protect, convert and operate across different media standards seamlessly, the companies say.
“Technology and broadcasting have finally intersected to provide a seamless, secure, and high-quality digital media experience for the consumer,” said Sally Daub, ViXS Systems’ president and CEO. “Together, ViXS Systems and Morega have solved the challenges associated with integrating broadcast, personal, and user-generated content across all CE devices in the home, and are taking the digital media entertainment industry to the next level.”
The combined offering detects media content present on all consumer electronics products within the home, and comply with Digital Living Network Alliance interoperability guidelines. The joint ViXS-Morega technology supports a broad range of consumer electronics products, including set-top boxes, personal computers, mobile phones, tablets, digital video recorders and NAS devices. Using a web browser or a mobile app, consumers can view and access all of their personal, user-generated, and premium content on their preferred devices of choice.
“The hassle involved with moving and managing content across a multitude of devices, and dealing with the frustration of digital rights management incompatibilities, are now things of the past, said Philip Poulidis, Morega Systems Inc.’s president and CEO. “Morega’s software running on ViXS systems’ hardware platform is a powerful solution to this problem, yet it's flexible enough to meet the distinct needs of all parties involved in the multimedia value chain—from consumers and content creators, to manufacturers and service providers.”
