Maximize and Streamline In-Home Content Consumption with Streaming DVB to IP

The XTi family of products from VBox brings streaming live TV and web-based digital content to any device on the home network, while still maintaining full content protection, and seamlessly integrating existing infrastructure. Vbox's DVB ti IP expertise creates a TV Gateway in the home.

The Challenge and Solution

The Challenge: Bringing PayTV to the home LAN

Broadcast providers traditionally supply premium content via cable or satellite to televisions equipped with DVB-based set-top boxes and PVRs, and Internet service via cable modem. However, today’s subscribers demand the freedom to consume digital content where and how they please – whether watching YouTube videos on their TV, or a live sports event on their tablet computer. Digital broadcast providers need branded, easily-implemented, multi-room and cross-platform solutions that enable access to live stream TV, satellite, cable and DTT broadcasts, recorded media, and VOD across the household – on TVs, PCs, smartphones, tablets, and other IP-enabled devices.

The Solution

The XTi VBox TV Gateway line of products enables broadcast providers to turn the subscriber home LAN into a fully-branded personal media and TV gateway. XTiVBox TV Gateway products offer a cost-effective DVB to IP convergence solution that integrates cleanly with any DVB or IPTV UI and middleware, and subscriber home networks. XTi VBox TV Gateway products leverage existing Ethernet, telephone and power line infrastructure, decreasing cabling overhead, and supporting wireless networks.
