GIST Eyes Patent for UGuide

The U.S. Patent Office published GIST Communications’ application for its UGuide digital-video-recorder wireless-scheduling service.

GIST said UGuide works with any DVR, including those in set-tops and media-center PCs, and enables users to remotely manage and schedule recordings via a cellular network by using the application via wireless mobile devices.

“The reaction to UGuide from both the telecommunications industry and consumers has been very positive, and we know with near certainty that we have the only remote digital-content-management service in the U.S. market," GIST CEO Jim Cantalini said in a prepared statement.
