At Cable-Tec Expo in the Networked Home Pavilion, Advanced Digital Broadcast (www.adbglobal.com) is showcasing a software-based gateway and a tru2way analyzer.
The company's Virtual Gateway is a software solution that distributes multimedia capabilities throughout the home. It's designed so that every set-top powered by it makes its resources available to any chosen device on the home network. It makes use of ADB and third-party hardware platforms and supports third-party OCAP and GEM based guides. It can be deployed without disrupting the operator's installed base of tru2way devices and without large capital expenditures.
The tru2way analyzer is a field tool for operators to verify their tru2way signal. The test system, using ADB's tru2way certified platform and CableLabs EYES software, is designed to make it easy for operators to debug and troubleshoot tru2way networks.
