VBox Communications introduces world’s first tv gateway to record live tv directly to home network storage
July 21, 2014
New Feature Allows Simultaneous Recording of Multiple Programs to Network Shared Folder or Network Attached Storage (NAS)
HERZLIYA, Israel – July 21, 2014 – VBox Communications, the pioneer of live TV streaming to connected devices in the home, today announced that its industry-leading TV Gateways now support Whole House DVR/PVR recording of live TV to a Windows network shared folder or Network Attached Storage (NAS). This new capability gives users expanded storage for content that can then be easily viewed from any device on the home network.
“The VBox TV Gateway is the only device on the market with this type of recording capability,” noted Amir Aharonovich, VP of Marketing for VBox Communications. “Network recording will allow families to record TV content to the same centralized location where their other data, including music, files and photos, is stored, resulting in more flexibility, larger storage space, fewer storage devices in the house, and reduced power consumption.”
The network storage feature allows users to schedule future recordings or record live TV directly to a Windows network shared folder on a PC or to NAS devices on the home network. The TV Gateway streams recorded programs from either the PC’s shared folder or NAS device to any UPnP supported application or device such as VLC, XMBC, Chrome and Firefox web browsers, as well as the VBox free applications, on all supported devices on the home network, such as smart phones, tablets, computers, and media streamers connected to TVs.
For users who already have a VBox TV Gateway, setting up the network storage feature requires the latest software update. All new devices (retailing for 150-250 Euro online) already have the network storage feature available and will continue to support storage on USB flash drives and USB Hard Disc Drives (HDD).
VBox Communications’ industry-leading line of TV Gateways was launched in February 2014 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The device receives broadcast live TV from terrestrial, cable and satellite sources, converts the signal to IP at the consumer’s home, and streams it across the home network to any connected device, leveling the playing field, and streaming high quality broadcast TV alongside OTT content.
