- In parallel, more than 20 companies are now in the process of certifying products to VidiPath Guidelines for subscription TV viewing that include the same advanced playback capabilities.
Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) member companies will be at International CES 2015 displaying a variety of key elements in a growing VidiPath ecosystem that will soon enable consumers to seamlessly view subscription TV content on many devices throughout the home.
Operators today face a complex set of technology choices, including determining the optimal in-home set-top box strategy, investment in more modern and focused guide experiences, migration to cloud-based architectures for improved maintenance and service agility as well as development of applications on a large number of platforms. VidiPath provides tools for operators to work with CE manufacturers to deliver a compelling user experience to consumers while reducing capital and operational costs.
