The gateway includes built-in transcoding capabilities, allowing it to take QAM MPEG-2 services and transcode to MPEG-4 for delivery to mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones, over the home network, according to Motorola. It also will provide operators with the flexibility to deliver a mixture of QAM and IP services, tuning up to six QAM services simultaneously or accessing IP services delivered directly over DOCSIS.
The Diamonds judges also were wowed that the product:
- Uses the full simultaneous six-stream capability of the M-card CableCARD standard
- Can stream content with its voluminous 1 TB HDD through the home via MoCA 2.0
- Implements the latest wideband tuner technology, allowing the simultaneous tuning and demodulation of up to eight downstream QAM channels from anywhere in the forward (54-1,002 MHz) passband
- Includes channel bonding support for eight downstream and four upstream DOCSIS 3.0 channels
In a nutshell, “this gateway will not only allow whole-house DVR, but will satisfy the growing demand for ‘any screen’ content delivery,” said one judge, and so seamlessly that customers won’t care how the content is delivered to the home, another judge added.
