LOUISVILLE, Colo. -- Ten industry suppliers participated in the third of a series of CableLabs tru2way Home Networking interoperability events. The most recent event was held at CableLabs from April 30 – May 4, 2012. Participants demonstrated sharing of premium cable content between a wide variety of IP-based Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) client services including early implementations of HTML5-based clients and cable operator-supplied Remote User Interface (RUI) program guides. The content was securely shared over the home network using DTCP-IP link protection.

  • Participating device manufacturers included Humax, Samsung Electronics, Sony Computer Entertainment America, and Sony Electronics.

  • DLNA technology component suppliers included ACCESS Systems, Groupo Communications, Myriad Group Ltd. and PacketVideo.

  • Tru2way Host Device manufacturers were represented by Cisco. Silicondust provided an OpenCable™ unidirectional receiver device.

  • Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Cox Communications provided program guides that integrated tru2way technology with multi-room DVR capability. Additionally, Comcast and Cox also provided HTML5-based program guides that supported playback of linear content.

The CableLabs tru2way Reference Implementation (RI) also participated as both a client device and a tru2way Host Device in the multi-vendor interoperability scenarios. The tru2way RI software is developed by CableLabs with support from the OpenSource community on and integrated into tru2way devices by manufacturers. The Reference Implementation allows manufacturers to quickly implement tru2way technology in their devices and provides cable operators with a robust, interoperable software platform for developing their program guides and other tru2way applications.
