Eatontown, NJ January 10, 2007 – Amedia Networks, Inc. (OTC BB: AANI), a provider of next generation media gateways to distribute and manage ultra-broadband triple-play services in the home, today announced that it will showcase its all-in-one gateway, home networking appliance, and media portal at the 2007 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Booth #26731 in South Hall 2, running Jan. 8-11 in Las Vegas, NV.
The Amedia gateway is designed to be the central point of networking, allowing subscribers to download and store all types of multimedia content from videos, to music, to games right on their gateway, and then access or display that content on virtually any television, monitor, or networked device.
Built on the company’s innovative Broadband Entertainment Center platform, the Amedia gateway packs all of the following features and more into a single, compact appliance:
« Home Networking: A lone Amedia gateway offers the combined functionality of a modem, router, wireless access point, VoIP adapter, and more within an all-in-one compact device.
« Software Operating System: Amedia gateways have the unique ability run proprietary or third-party software programs, enabling delivery of value-added multimedia or networking applications to subscribers such as in-home messaging, remote home monitoring, a virtual family calendar, and much more.
« Internet Access: Surf the web at ultra-broadband speeds on your television, powered by the Amedia gateway, from the comfort of your couch – and without the need of a computer.
« Media Storage: External storage allows subscribers to build extensive media libraries of music, videos, documents, or virtually any other file type all accessible directly through the Amedia gateway.
« Media Library Portal: Organize, search, and select your media through an easy-to-use, customizable interface which can be viewed from any networked TV or monitor.
« Quality of Service (QoS): No more squiggly video or sketchy VoIP phone calls! Subscribers can prioritize the ultra-broadband services most important to them whether it is voice, video, or data to avoid disruption of quality or speed.
« Ultrawideband (UWB): Wirelessly transmit bandwidth-intensive HD video over considerable distances – while still maintaining picture quality – to various home entertainment and media devices throughout the home.
Ultimately, Amedia’s goal is to enable telecommunications carriers to increase revenue opportunities and better manage triple-play services, while also offering more convenience, quality assurance, and other value-added benefits to subscribers.
