Delivers Internet-Based Video Content to the Home TV
iGUGU, a global manufacturer of innovative entertainment technology products for consumers and business announced an intuitive video streaming system that enables users to quickly and easily search, access and view computer- and Internet-based video content on a television or home theater using a handheld wireless remote control.
With the addition of the iGUGU InterneTV solution to the home network, viewing restrictions are lifted from the confines of computer monitors and screens of small mobile devices allowing users to enjoy the incredible volumes of web-based content on any television, just as they are accustomed to with all other video entertainment content. When the InterneTV is paired with a 4G connection, the highest-quality Internet-to-television video streaming experience is achieved while also demonstrating the true power of the 4G video relationship and driving the demand for high-speed connectivity in the home.
The InterneTV provides a high-performing intelligent video streaming solution delivering the same remote-controlled, easy-to-use system for accessing and viewing programming as cable and other satellite services can offer. Together with an ultra-broadband connection, the InterneTV presents the ultimate home entertainment experience by bringing the world of multimedia content to the television, viewable in high-definition and surround sound, while eliminating jitter, pixilation and freezing issues commonly found with streaming video using slower connection speeds.
“We saw the need to take video content off of small screen devices and bring it to the television, delivering Internet video to the masses and completely changing the way people receive entertainment from the Internet,” stated Isaac Calderon, president of iGUGU. “Technologies such as Femtocell and WiMAX are making it possible for telecom providers to deliver ultra-broadband connectivity to the home and the capabilities of the InterneTV combined with 4G connectivity will undoubtedly drive the demand for this service at the consumer level.”
