At IBC, Zappware (www.zappware.com) introduced Flux Lite, the company's first cloud-based, thin-client application. Intended for operators looking to deploy newer services to a large installed base of older set-top boxes, to subscribers' connected TVs, or to boxes containing HTML browser capabilities, Flux Lite offers operators flexibility in the level of service offered to keep pace with rising consumer demand for value-added services.

The Flux Lite platform, enabled by patent-pending technology within Zappware's iView engine, maintains the bulk of its processing power on the operator's headend servers and requires very little processing in the set-top. Software installed in the set-top runs the application from the server and provides the viewer access to services such as VOD, PVR and advanced EPGs. Because the application is running in a central location, updates and communications can be issued quickly and consistently.
