It has been revealed this week that Verizon is nearing the end of development for a new product to its range in the form of a media server. Which has been designed to enable users to enjoy using multiple third-party devices simultaneously via their home network to view and control FiOS TV services.
Even though full details of the new Verizon Media Server are still unknown, it will use standards such as those from the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) and the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA).
Verizon explained that their new FiOS TV Media Server, “will fully meet the Commission’s output and home networking requirements and create new choices for consumers in… how and on which devices they access content,” “to enable simultaneous streaming of FiOS content to multiple devices over a subscriber’s home network, ultimately without the need for any additional Verizon equipment at all,”
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.Filed Under: Technology News
