EdgeStream to provide DVD-quality video over the Net

By Derek Sooman on
EdgeStream has developed a television set-top box that can deliver DVD-quality, on-demand broadcasts over the Net. Using proprietary IPTV software, the broadband IPV500 set-top box runs Windows Media Series 9 technology over EdgeStream's IPTV software. The device will be able to deliver IPTV to subscribers in the United Kingdom and Europe.

"The EdgeStream software suite provides a highly reliable...platform that will allow us to provide our end customers with full-screen DVD-quality video on demand (as well as) streaming applications in the U.K. and Europe over the public Internet." - Graham Cooke, CEO of Media Portal Technology, U.K.

This kind of market is starting to generate a lot of interest, not just with this product but from telephone companies, who have plans to use their growing fiber and hybrid DSL networks to carry television.
