Mediaroom 2.0 Announced at CES

From Microsoft:

Today at CES, Microsoft announced Mediaroom 2.0, the new version of their award-winning IPTV middleware platform. The update enables service providers to more subscribers than ever before, delivering more content to more screens — both inside and outside the home.

Mediaroom 2.0 allows service providers to:

  • Deploy Mediaroom as the cloud that powers their service
  • Bring live, recorded and on-demand content to Windows 7 PCs via Windows Media Center with no additional hardware
  • Expand their service footprint beyond the reach of their IPTV network by offering existing on-demand TV service to their entire broadband customer base
  • Use Microsoft Silverlight and Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Smooth Streaming for the access and delivery of on-demand content.
  • In the near future, enable playback on compatible smartphones
