Comcast has selected video processing software from Elemental Technologies to power encoding for the X1 DVR with cloud technology.
Last year, Comcast began offering customers the X1 DVR with cloud technology, which lets customers record TV shows and movies in the Comcast cloud.
While in the home, X1 DVR with cloud technology allows customers to turn every device into a TV, providing access to the program guide and nearly the entire channel lineup, as well as the entire Xfinity On Demand library.
“Video infrastructure is moving rapidly to IP and to software-defined video solutions running in virtualized environments on customer’s own networks,” comments Dan Marshall, senior vice president of worldwide sales for Elemental. “As Comcast continues to expand its X1 DVR service and sets a new bar for consumer experiences, Elemental software will enable rapid market launches.”
