The plethora of TV and video devices, services and applications, which seems to grow on a daily basis, is enough to confuse even the most ardent technofile. Today, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Cisco made a major step toward simplifying the TV experience.
Amid weeks of industry speculation, Cisco introduced Cisco Videoscape, a comprehensive TV platform for service providers that brings together digital TV and online content with social media and communications applications to create a new, truly immersive home and mobile video entertainment experience.
“Videoscape represents the future of television,” said Pankaj Patel, SVP and GM of Cisco’s Service Provider Business. “We believe this platform will do for television what the mobile Internet has done for mobile phones and devices. This is the only entertainment solution available today that delivers this experience in full scope, combining all the necessary technology components of the cloud, the network and client devices. We’re looking forward to working with service providers to give give consumers the best TV experience they can get.”
