ATLANTA, GA – July 10, 2014 – Conklin-Intracom, together with hardware partner InfinitecTM, announces cdn|anywhereTM Pocket TVTM, an extension of their TV-anywhere products portfolio that enables operators to leverage their award-winning fs|cdn® platform, cdn|foundationTM.
The micro-sized device turns any HDMI TV into a Smart TV, so subscribers can watch live broadcasts, On-Demand Video (VoD, PPV, PPB) and DVR anywhere they travel. Not only can subscribers create multiple user accounts, each with their own, fully customizable EPG, they can also rewind Live TV to catch up on what they have missed.
Because cdn|anywhereTM Pocket TV is significantly less expensive than a tablet or smartphone, and eliminates the need for a set-top box or additional installations, operators can easily implement and market this consumer low-cost entry-point solution, with minimal investment risk, for what can potentially be a sizable R.O.I.
“We continue to focus our efforts in expanding our anywhere portfolio. We have a distinct advantage in the market because we are equipped with the talent and resources to engineer and develop innovations that help operators stay on the cutting-edge of video delivery technology,” explained Michael Agostinelli, V.P. of Sales. “This, in turn, allows service providers to customize their subscribers’ experience. That is why our efforts continue to be focused on device support and adding new features.”
Pocket TVTM is the latest addition to Conklin-Intracom’s cdn|anywhereTM portfolio, which includes Android and iOS apps, software and hardware encoding, and streaming servers to deliver secure, high-quality, low-cost TV-Anywhere for our service providers.
“We are very excited about Pocket TV. This is a great product for any service provider, especially Broadband Cable operators. Our engineers have worked hard to design a solution that brings our award-winning fs|cdn® platform to all providers, regardless of their existing infrastructure. This is what we believe makes cdn|anywhereTM Pocket TV a strong leader in today’s market,” added Randy Staab, V.P. of Engineering and Customer Support.
