IP Video Networks (IPVN) Bridges Gap Between Laptop and TV
Laptop to TV technology allows cable subscribers to share and enjoy media from a laptop on a TV without an additional set-top-box or hardware component
SAN DIEGO, March 1 -- IP Video Networks, Inc., a video over IP technology company, introduces a new concept and equipment for cable TV providers that allows subscribers to send video, audio and pictures from a netbook, laptop, or mobile device for immediate viewing on a TV. From a standard web browser the subscriber can identify a video on the web, select "Send to TV," and the cable network delivers the selected content for viewing on the TV. The technology does not require the subscriber to install any additional devices.
IP Video Networks, Inc. developed this technology (patent pending) in 2009 and believes the ubiquitous "TV remote" will migrate to an intelligent but low cost device, such as a netbook or laptop, which will enhance interactive television and simplify content sharing and discovery.
IPVN is offering this technology to selected partners in the cable industry and expects to be a leader in the drive for users to view any content from any source on any cable connected screen. The elegance of the design allows cable network operators to explore new business models around a new service for existing subscribers.
"This new capability solves the nagging technical issues that always come up while trying to share video content, viewable on PC devices, with the home TV," said Bob Coackley, IPVN's Chief Executive Officer. "Customers will be able to select any content from the Web and push movies, clips or other rich media to the TV. This technology is part of our commitment to help cable companies stay at the forefront in offering their subscribers the best entertainment offerings that technology can support."
"There are many additional opportunities that this technology offers," said Jarrod Hammes, Vice President of Marketing at IPVN. "As IPVN's technology does not require the cable operator or user to deploy a new set-top-box, it simplifies interactive television by enabling a laptop to provide a great user interface, while leveraging the existing HD capabilities and network capabilities built by the cable operators."
