CableLabs Demos Tru2way Premium Content Sharing among Home Devices

CableLabs hosted an interoperability event showing premium cable content being shared over the home network in a secure manner. Devices on the home network communicated and shared content using Ethernet, MoCA 1.1 (Multimedia over Coax Alliance), or Wi-Fi technologies. The tru2way software reference implementation (RI) was also included in the multi-vendor interoperability scenarios.

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) Certified device manufacturers included Samsung Electronics, Sony Computer Entertainment America, and Sony Electronics. DLNA Technology Component® suppliers included ACCESS Systems, AwoX, Irdeto and NDS. Tru2way host device manufacturers were represented by Cisco, Motorola and Samsung. Program guides that integrate tru2way technology with multi-room DVR capability from Comcast, Cox, and Time Warner Cable were also used in the event.

"Comcast is very pleased to see our program guide running on set-top boxes that have integrated the tru2way reference implementation software," stated Steve Reynolds, Senior Vice President, Premises Technology, Comcast.
