CES2006: Ruckus to Stream HD via Wireless IPTV
said it plans to stream HD video via multicast IPTV technology at CES this week, incorporating HD, SD and IP streams over a standard consumer 802.11g Wi-Fi network.
Ruckus said its new technology configuration permits the creation of Wi-Fi links between various end-points that can be monitored and managed. Ruckus says its system selects the most opportunistic paths of Wi-Fi signals at any given time and, in real time, automatically maneuvers the signals around potential interference barriers.
In one CES2006 demo, the company plans to use its Wi-Fi multimedia router (MF2900) to send HD MPEG-2 video over 802.11g to a typical Xbox 360 game console equipped with the firm's adapter (MF2501). Another demo will feature multiple MPEG-4 IPTV streams being transmitted over a Ruckus Wi-Fi system to an STB from Amino Technologies
. And a third demo will demonstrate analog and digital cable signals being sent from digital STBs and DVRs to a Sling Media
device (Slingbox) to other sites within a typical home environment.
