Alticast Showcasing STB On a Stick

Alticast (Pavilion in main exhibit hall) will show off HDMI Media Express, a “set-top-box on a stick” that supports authenticated TV Everywhere services and other cloud-based offerings.

 The device, designed for in-home or out-of-home use, also supports the Reference Design Kit (RDK), the preintegrated software stack for IP-connected devices that is being managed by Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Liberty Global.

HDMI Media Express also bakes in Alticast’s HTML5 TV Ready User Agent application framework, which provides seamless operation of HTML5 and Android applications, the company said.
