ARRIS shows its ActiveVideo cloud UI running Ericsson MediaFirst on old Motorola set-top box

Share on

One interesting demonstration at IBC this week was ARRIS showing the Ericsson MediaFirst user interface running on an old Motorola set-top box (the VIP 1200) using the ActiveVideo cloud-based UI solution. The ActiveVideo technology renders the UI on cloud servers, effectively turning a user interface view into a video stream that is delivered over broadcast infrastructure (providing there is a solid return path) for decoding on a set-top box. The idea is that despite being an advanced next-generation UI, the Ericsson MediaFirst UI could be displayed on old legacy set-top boxes as well as high-end devices that a service provider ships to customers.
