Prodea Systems, Inc. announces they are displaying their Residential Operating System (ROS®) technology and the “My-HD+” and “My-HD Home” suite of digital lifestyle services, during CABSAT 2013 in Dubai, 12-14 March 2013, at the stand of My-HD, Prodea’s regional satellite service provider partner.
Prodea’s ROS® technology, a comprehensive distributed cloud-based platform, which has been integrated into satellite hybrid set-top-boxes certified for sale by My-HD, will deliver a collection of next generation digital lifestyle services to millions of My-HD subscribers across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), starting in Q2 2013. As additional advanced satellite hybrid set-top-boxes are deployed throughout the year, My-HD subscribers will have access to an even more extensive list of additional ‘beyond TV’ services that are multi-screen and easy to use.
‘Beyond TV’ and across multiple screens:
Prodea’s ROS® is a carrier-grade, managed, hybrid cloud platform which delivers an “Appstore” of value-add services, addressing every aspect of the consumer’s connected lifestyle, starting with entertainment (e.g. movies on-demand), connected TV applications such as YouTube, CNN, and Tune-In Radio, Social TV, and Media Player functionality.
Starting in Q3 2013, more advanced services will also be introduced, ranging from peer-to-peer voice and video communication services, media sharing, energy management, home automation, home monitoring, health and wellness, and even education, just to name a few.
“We are excited to work with My-HD, a progressive operator in the region, in delivering an attractive line-up of high definition satellite television programming and the next generation of connected lifestyle services throughout MENA,” said Dr. Anousheh Ansari, CEO of Prodea Systems, Inc. “Our mission is to empower consumers to harness the power of the digital age and to provide them with an intuitive, consistent, user-friendly experience that connects and unifies all of today’s primary digital screens—TVs, PCs, smart phones, tablets, and the evolving list of connected digital devices in our connected lives, regardless of their operating systems”.
On display at CABSAT 2013 is the first hybrid satellite receiver that is certified by My-HD to offer the upcoming My-HD+ and Home service offerings, along with a next generation over-the-top set-top-box delivering a suite of Prodea ROS® enabled services.
