Introducing VIOTECH's My eHome® -- a multi-play solution easily installed in the user's home -- renders simultaneous and fully-adapted content to users to provide the best and most familiar multimedia experience possible. Officially unveiled @ CES 2013, the launch of My eHome was a major, and yet unexpected, success.  Exhibiting from the Eureka Park Tech Zone at CES, VIOTECH drew more than a thousand visits and demo requests from media, investors, analysts, buyers and a wide array of interested industrial parties, including operators such as Comcast, content providers like DirecTV and major multimedia equipment manufacturers including Panasonic, Cisco and Nagra.

VIOTECH was the only non-U.S. based startup among eight finalists selected to pitch their concept to leading angel investors at Showstoppers' prestigious Launch.it Pitchfest event on Monday, January 7.

So, what exactly is My eHome?

"The original challenge was based on the concept that today's multimedia user wants 24-hour ubiquitous access to all his content, wherever he is, on any terminal, in harmony with all the other things he loves to do," says Marius Negru, VIOTECH'S Head of Strategic Projects.  "But what's simple is often the most difficult to achieve. With so many platforms and content delivery vehicles in the marketplace, while users now have multiple content access, they also face multiple access issues which include offer fragmentation, quality and privacy.

"My eHome tackles all three elements in a single platform. "

At the heart of the concept, Negru says, is VIOTECH'S proprietary design that combines a user's personal files with mainstream content (i.e., TV/IPTV channel subscription, recordings, and web browser, etc.), all of which is stored and then streamed – on demand. HomeB®, as the home-installed set-top-box device is called, reads and can transmit all videos, pictures, music, data, files and text through DLNA supported delivery mechanisms.

To access his content, the user simply connects his remote receiver to any electronic multimedia device (it can be a personal laptop, tablet, smartphone, even a hotel room TV set), and through a unique customizable interface, the receiver delivers the user's content in the identical configurations and interface with which the user feel both comfortable and familiar, since he configured it all by himself.

According to Negru, My eHome maintains several distinct advantages over its competitors in the remote content delivery marketplace.  "Several companies convey data remotely, but My eHome will be the only product to deliver both a user's home television content and data files in his exact home interface," he says.  "But that's only the tip of the iceberg.  Thanks to the in-house-developed adaptation algorithms, the video content is streamed to the receiving terminal based on what we call the 'user-context,' a set of parameters measuring the location, the terminal or the network conditions that allow for most optimized video experience.  Second, since all content is stored within HomeB, the user keeps FULL control over any shared content to allow for editing, removal or deletion."

And as they proved last week, thanks to My eHome's innovative storage functionality, What happens in Vegas stays in the HomeB®!

On the heels of their successful CES introduction, My eHome has initiated production toward a scheduled target delivery of early 2014.  The company is presently seeking North American industrial partners including telecoms, content providers, cable operators and manufacturers.

Founded in 2007 by Marius Negru and fellow childhood friends and associates, VIOTECH is committed to the conception, development, creation, marketing and promotion of high-level, added-value services and applications designed for implementation within the booming Digital Home Networking Market.  Through innovative hardware and software solutions, VIOTECH products enable streaming transmission of audiovisual and multimedia content via digital networks including IP multicasting over WLAN and Intranets inside homes and offices.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
