December 24, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Singapore ¡V A strategic lineup of Streaming21, the world leader in broadcast-quality streaming solutions; WNC (TSE:6285), a global leader in wireless communications and IPTV; and Microsoft (NASDAQ ¡§MSFT¡¨) Embedded Sever team, will present their fully-integrated, end-to-end digital home solutions December 5-7 at IPTV World Forum Asia in Singapore. The live demo is a warm-up event for a worldwide product launch aimed at connecting the digital home with the networked world via must-have ¡§killer¡¨ applications, based on recently released Microsoft Home Server.

Making its public debut is the fully-integrated Home Server, which allows users to manage personal content (such as photos, videos and music) and display real-time internet content on their TVs (Internet News and Weather, and more). Thanks to this innovative solution, users can also enjoy commercial content services (movie rentals or Home Karaoke services for example) and control their digital home devices. The open web-based platform makes it easy to add unlimited applications for service expansions.

WNC¡¦s powerful set-top box and reliable server hardware plus Streaming21¡¦s innovative Home Entertainment Server are seamlessly integrated with Microsoft Home Server and Windows Storage Server 2003 R2, making it easy to add or expand applications. The unique Home Sever acts as the central control center for digital home entertainment, automation, surveillance and communication applications. In contrast to traditional Home Servers that only serve as extensible storage, the innovative platform makes ubiquitous access of killer applications for the digital home a market reality. Unlike other PC-based home server products, the platform enables media display on TVs and provides an easy management system for personal content through the PC.

The demonstration will showcase the revolutionary platform enabling digital home ¡§killer apps¡¨ on IA and home devices through wired and wireless IP networks. It will also demonstrate a new generation of Web 2.0 concepts that are inspired by the universal desire to create community and share personal content on TV with friends and family through easy web-based management. Other key features include Digital Home Theater, Movie Rental, Video on Demand (VOD) with trick play capability, Personal Video Recorder (PVR), Photo Bank, and Real-Time Information Dashboard (RSS: News, Weather, Stocks, Photo Albums, and more).

Experience the revolutionary Digital Home showcase at Stand A54 (WNC) in the Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, December 5-7.
