Orca Interactive Launches Home Media for IPTV

Orca Interactive, a supplier of IPTV middleware, introduced a digital entertainment application that brings digital media content from a PC to a TV in the living room. This enables IPTV subscribers to view photos and listen to music via the TV.

The new Home Media application is part of the Orca RiGHTv video-over-IP application suite. Home Media is comprised of TV- and PC-based components. The TV application provides a user-friendly subscriber user interface (SUI), accessed from the RiGHTv main menu. PC applications include a media server responsible for connectivity between the PC and STB, and a graphical user interface (GUI) for mapping media folders.

Separately, Orca and Tata Consultancy Services announced a partnership to offer worldwide IPTV system integration and service development over RiGHTv, Orca's IPTV middleware.

RiGHTv is in use at Atlas Communications in India, as well as with a worldwide base of operators including Chunghwa Telecom (Taiwan), Bezeq (Israel), iVISJON (Norway), FiberCity (Philippines) and Magnet Networks (Ireland).
