No problem!

Introducing VIOTECH's My eHome® -- a multi-play solution easily installed in the user's home -- renders simultaneous and fully-adapted content to users to provide the best and most familiar multimedia experience possible. Officially unveiled @ CES 2013, the launch of My eHome was a major, and yet unexpected, success.  Exhibiting from the Eureka Park Tech Zone at CES, VIOTECH drew more than a thousand visits and demo requests from media, investors, analysts, buyers and a wide array of interested industrial parties, including operators such as Comcast, content providers like DirecTV and major multimedia equipment manufacturers including Panasonic, Cisco and Nagra.

VIOTECH was the only non-U.S. based startup among eight finalists selected to pitch their concept to leading angel investors at Showstoppers' prestigious Launch.it Pitchfest event on Monday, January 7.

So, what exactly is My eHome?

"The original challenge was based on the concept that today's multimedia user wants 24-hour ubiquitous access to all his content, wherever he is, on any terminal, in harmony with all the other things he loves to do," says Marius Negru, VIOTECH'S Head of Strategic Projects.  "But what's simple is often the most difficult to achieve. With so many platforms and content delivery vehicles in the marketplace, while users now have multiple content access, they also face multiple access issues which include offer fragmentation, quality and privacy.

"My eHome tackles all three elements in a single platform. "

At the heart of the concept, Negru says, is VIOTECH'S proprietary design that combines a user's personal files with mainstream content (i.e., TV/IPTV channel subscription, recordings, and web browser, etc.), all of which is stored and then streamed – on demand. HomeB®, as the home-installed set-top-box device is called, reads and can transmit all videos, pictures, music, data, files and text through DLNA supported delivery mechanisms.

To access his content, the user simply connects his remote receiver to any electronic multimedia device (it can be a personal laptop, tablet, smartphone, even a hotel room TV set), and through a unique customizable interface, the receiver delivers the user's content in the identical configurations and interface with which the user feel both comfortable and familiar, since he configured it all by himself.

According to Negru, My eHome maintains several distinct advantages over its competitors in the remote content delivery marketplace.  "Several companies convey data remotely, but My eHome will be the only product to deliver both a user's home television content and data files in his exact home interface," he says.  "But that's only the tip of the iceberg.  Thanks to the in-house-developed adaptation algorithms, the video content is streamed to the receiving terminal based on what we call the 'user-context,' a set of parameters measuring the location, the terminal or the network conditions that allow for most optimized video experience.  Second, since all content is stored within HomeB, the user keeps FULL control over any shared content to allow for editing, removal or deletion."

And as they proved last week, thanks to My eHome's innovative storage functionality, What happens in Vegas stays in the HomeB®!

On the heels of their successful CES introduction, My eHome has initiated production toward a scheduled target delivery of early 2014.  The company is presently seeking North American industrial partners including telecoms, content providers, cable operators and manufacturers.

Founded in 2007 by Marius Negru and fellow childhood friends and associates, VIOTECH is committed to the conception, development, creation, marketing and promotion of high-level, added-value services and applications designed for implementation within the booming Digital Home Networking Market.  Through innovative hardware and software solutions, VIOTECH products enable streaming transmission of audiovisual and multimedia content via digital networks including IP multicasting over WLAN and Intranets inside homes and offices.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that allow marketers to cut through the noise and design their campaigns around strong, predictive signals, rather than arbitrary statistics. SendGrid sends up to half a billion emails a day for customers such as Pinterest and GitHub. All this email adds up to more text than produced in the entire twitterverse.
