“Intel-based multi-screen video gateways in the home from innovative OEMs like ARRIS allow people to watch both live TV and on-demand shows whenever they want on their new Intel-based devices.”

Intel is collaborating with Comcast so that customers can enjoy the Xfinity TV experience on IP set-top boxes, Ultrabook devices, Intel-based all-in-one PCs, tablets and smartphones as well as smart TVs in the home. This experience is made possible by the Intel Puma 6MG-based XG5 multi-screen video gateway.

“Working closely with service providers like Comcast allows us to bring exciting new entertainment experiences to tablets, phones, all-in-one PCs and Ultrabook devices,” said Alan Crouch, Intel vice president and general manager, PCCG Service Provider Division. “Intel-based multi-screen video gateways in the home from innovative OEMs like ARRIS allow people to watch both live TV and on-demand shows whenever they want on their new Intel-based devices.”

The XG5 multi-screen video gateway, which is designed by ARRIS, allows any screen in the home to access live and on-demand entertainment. This new category of device provides video, voice and high-speed Internet via MoCA, DECT and wifi from one device creating a home network for numerous devices and second screens. Multi-screen video gateways are emerging devices that centrally manage pay TV, broadband access to voice as well as new services such as home security and home management.

Comcast is working with Intel to develop this technology based on upcoming enhancements to the DLNA Premium Content Guidelines to deliver its XFINITY TV experience to Intel-based devices in the home. DLNA is a set of interoperability guidelines that enable the delivery of enhanced content services and secure transport of protected digital content to devices around the home.

Intel has not indicated whether similar system will be available in Australia.
