Nagra Tablet 300x180NAGRA is introducing a broadcast-to-IP gateway to allow live TV to be delivered to IP-enabled devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops without impacting a consumer's existing live TV viewing or creating a burden on the service provider's network. The solution will be on display at the Cable Show in Boston, as well as ANGA Cable in Cologne, Germany.

The gateway, powered by NAGRA's OpenTV middleware, is designed as a plug-and-play approach and to work with existing and deployed set-tops. It's an in-home edge device that acts as an independent content access point that tunes to subscribed services and transcodes them the proper format for the end device.

Connected through Ethernet to a WiFi router, the box receives an incoming broadcast signal through a coax cable. It utilizes NAGRA's in-home DRM solution, NAGRA Persistent Rights Management, to enable secure wireless streaming of linear programming to authorized viewing devices within the home such as tablets, smartphones and PCs.
