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.

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mac Devine, Distinguished Engineer at IBM, will discuss bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets. When an outside party owns, controls and manages your infrastructure and computational resources, how can you be assured that sensitive data remains private and secure? How do you best protect data in mixed use cloud and big data infrastructure sets? Can you still satisfy the full range of reporting, compliance and regulatory requirements? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management at Vormetric, will discuss how to address data security in cloud and Big Data environments so that your organization isn’t next week’s data breach headline.

Enterprises require the performance, agility and on-demand access of the public cloud, and the management, security and compatibility of the private cloud. The solution? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Simone Brunozzi, VP and Chief Technologist(global role) for VMware, will explore how to unlock the power of the hybrid cloud and the steps to get there. He'll discuss the challenges that conventional approaches to both public and private cloud computing, and outline the tough decisions that must be made to accelerate the journey to the hybrid cloud. As part of the transition, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service model will enable enterprise IT to build services beyond their data center while owning what gets moved, when to move it, and for how long. IT can then move forward on what matters most to the organization that it supports – availability, agility and efficiency.
Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.
