The Maelstrom distributed gateway enables branded premium TV content for the entire digital home, including TV, PC, Mac®, iPad® and iPhone® devices.

Paolo Siccardo, President and CEO of Digital Keystone, said, “It is always an honor to participate in CableLabs events, and this year we are particularly pleased to be featured in the Innovation Showcase. This underscores the importance of next-generation gateways for the cable industry, and the recognition given to Digital Keystone’s solutions. We are demonstrating Maelstrom on a gateway platform utilizing an Intel® Atom™ media processor.

Digital Keystone’s Maelstrom is a distributed broadcast/broadband architecture that enables delivery of content services throughout the entire digital home. The Maelstrom solution consists of a Maelstrom-enabled gateway and a Maelstrom-enabled synchronization server. The gateway converts broadcast services to the native format of each connected device. This means that viewers can immediately watch premium content on their TVs, PCs, iPads or iPhones without downloading any plug-ins, installing any applications, or configuring any custom code. With the addition of the synchronization server, the network operator can easily customize and control their service offerings, including search, recommendations, advertising and promotions, for a richer, more friendly viewer experience.
