The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) today announced that the Moxi® whole home media solution from ARRIS was named the "Technology Most Likely To Succeed" following the inaugural Innovation Showcase at the SCTE Canadian Summit here.
The Moxi whole home media solution was one of five products and solutions demonstrated at the Innovation Showcase this morning. All five have been designed to drive new value for cable system operators in areas ranging from content management and bandwidth usage management to bandwidth reclamation and identity theft. The winner was selected by SCTE Canadian Summit attendees using mobile text messaging.
The Moxi® whole home media solution demonstration featured the award-winning Moxi UI; Moxi media platform with Moxi HD DVR and Moxi Mate multi-room players; and Moxi Portal. The demonstration showcased the ability to time- and place-shift delivery of media content -- whether via digital cable, the home network or integrated Internet services -- throughout the home where Moxi is available.
"The Moxi HD DVR and Moxi Mate products provide a very compelling solution for cable operators," said Steve Irvine, vice president, technology for EastLink Cable Systems, and contact for the Innovation Showcase. "Providing MSOs with the ability to convert standard SD & HD broadcast video to IP within the home, and to offer whole-home DVR, remote recording, access to online content and an award winning guide makes the Moxi solution a very attractive prospect."
"We are very pleased that SCTE has recognized the ARRIS Moxi® whole home media solution, which represents a next step in IP innovation for operators and their consumers, as the winner of its 2010 Innovation Showcase," commented ARRIS VP Product Management, Video CPE, Ron Miller.
