StitcherFive is the heart of the CloudTV H5 Platform. It executes and renders HTML5 applications and generates MPEG-2 and H.264 compliant streams on a per-client basis.
CloudTV’s classic “thin client” solution enables the delivery of rich, uniform advanced TV experiences, even to the millions of first-generation digital set-top boxes that are in the field today. The lightweight client is downloaded to, or pre-installed on, any digital STB, CI Plus device or CE device, and is used simply to send keyclicks upstream. The thin-client solution overcomes the resource limitations in cable’s legacy set-top box fleet by shifting all of the processing into the network. In addition, Cloud TV’s thin-client solution enables the deployment of lightweight, energy-efficient set-top boxes – or even CI Plus conditional access modules – in the future. In every case, devices are able to receive the same rich CloudTV content, providing viewers with a uniform experience on every screen in the network.

In addition to its “thin client” capabilities that provide rich experiences on any device, ActiveVideo Networks also offers a “hybrid client” version of each Thin Client for CloudTV customers with more robust set-top boxes and CE devices. By combining CloudTV’s superior network processing with device-based functionality such as advanced graphics rendering, service providers can offer viewers the best of both worlds, while at the same time conserving bandwidth within the network.
