NanoTech's Nuvola NP-1 4K Streaming Media Player Demonstrated with Akamai Media & Delivery Solutions at NAB 2014Affordable Solution Consistently and Reliably Delivers Four Times the Resolution of Full HD (March 21, 2014)
Using advanced technologies, Akamai and NanoTech will demonstrate how 4K content can be uploaded to Akamai's global content delivery network (CDN) and streamed to a consumer's Ultra HD TV using NanoTech's Nuvola NP-1 4K streaming media player. The result is a compelling solution for broadcasters and other content owners who want to provide their customers with the 4K End-user Quality of Experience (QoE) they increasingly expect.
Akamai Media & Delivery Solutions are built upon the Akamai Intelligent Platform(tm) of over 147,000 globally distributed servers that deliver up to 30 percent of all Web traffic. By spreading content that would otherwise be concentrated in a few locations, Akamai offers improved network efficiency, greater security and attack protection, as well as better service quality for end users by providing continuous uptime and enabling faster access and download speeds.
The Nuvola NP-1 is a multifunction consumer device that can be used to decode a variety of video formats and resolutions including 4K Ultra HD, HD, SD and 3D movies. It can also be used to play state-of-the-art 3D video games. Based on the AndroidTM Operating System, the Nuvola provides fast, easy website access as well as access to thousands of video games and applications from NVIDIA(r) Tegra(r) Zone and the Google PlayTM Store.
"The Nuvola player's ability to stream 4K content complements the Akamai Intelligent Network's ability to deliver content at this ultra-high quality level," said Will Law, principal architect, media engineering, Akamai. In providing an end-point for streaming delivery, it offers a more flexible alternative to store-and-forward download solutions while the Android operating system simplifies player development and the small form factor facilitates deployment. We expect the Nuvola to accelerate residential 4K adoption."
Nuvola NP-1, the world's first consumer streaming media player that supports 4K Ultra HD content, is currently in production and will be available for new customers this quarter for $299.
