MatrixStream enters in-vehicle entertainment with hi-def IPTV


Mumbai: MatrixStream Technologies is partnering with multiple motor vehicle manufacturers to bring consumers the new MX2 wireless terminal touch screen IPTV platform codename MX-Drive.

The MX-Drive uses MatrixCast video streaming technology, allowing consumers to instantly stream video on demand titles and live TV channels in both standard definition and high definition over very low bandwidth from any vehicle equipped with the MX-Drive.

"Whether you’re a business person who needs to keep up to date with the latest stock news or a parent who wants to keep your children occupied during extended road trips, the MX2 wireless terminal touch screen will keep car and minivan passengers tuned in all ride long", said MatrixStream COO Robert Liu.

The heart of this IPTV solution is the MatrixCast video streaming transport, a video transport protocol capable of streaming HD videos over the Internet at low bandwidth requirements.

MatrixStream IPTV servers and players all work in conjunction seamlessly using the MatrixCast streaming protocol. And since the solution is software based, the MX2 can be configured wirelessly, automatically integrating updates and optional add-ons; allowing for greater functionality, expandability and a higher degree of customization.
