DVR innovator TiVo has added two new low-cost products to its range of whole-home viewing solutions, as it seeks to maintain the uptick in fortunes it is currently enjoying.
A new IP set-top box has been unveiled at the 2012 NCTA Cable Show in Boston, designed to complement the home’s primary TiVo DVR by extending the TiVo experience onto secondary TVs, including live and recorded television viewing.
Its new TiVo Stream product meanwhile provides transcoding to enable content viewing on mobile devices, and the company claims that it is the first in the market to enable streaming or download of shows simultaneously to multiple portable devices without interrupting what’s playing on the television.
TiVo and UK set-top box specialist Pace revealed the first product to come out of their partnership yesterday – a six-tuner video gateway with integrated DOCSIS 3.0 and support for the TiVo Whole Home Solution (more details here).
Despite seeing its once-dominant share of the US market for DVRs dwindle, TiVo now appears to be fighting back on a number of fronts, including launching new products and targeting new markets, such as the UK with its Virgin Media contract.
