Triveni Multimedia Announces iRevo™ WebTop, the World's First Web and HDTV Convergence Appliance

Delivers Best of Web Content and Web Applications on the HDTV via an Easy to Use Software Interface and Simple to Install Consumer Device

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - Triveni Multimedia today announced immediate availability of the iRevo WebTop appliance and iRevo application delivery platform for consumer electronics original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and managed service operators (MSOs).

The iRevo WebTop, previewed at last week's CableLabs Innovation Event, is a cost effective, small footprint and low power appliance for delivering web content and web applications on an HDTV. It provides a physical bridge between the Web and an HDTV utilizing HDMI and a remote control, without requiring a PC. It brings personal content from networked PCs and USB storage devices to the HDTV.

Triveni's iRevo application delivery platform for OEMs and MSOs enables web content, web applications and personal media on devices such as set top boxes, connected HDTVs and Blu-ray players; enabling the user to surf the web much like they would channel surf on a TV.

"Triveni developed iRevo to deliver the convergence of web content, web applications and personal content on the consumer's HDTV," said Dhimant Bhayani, founder and CEO of Triveni Multimedia. "If you have a broadband internet connection, you can access the world's leading Web sites for viewing photos and videos or checking your e-mail or posting tweets and listening to your favorite radio station or music, in less than five minutes. It is simple to connect and intuitive to use."

"The iRevo application is one of the most comprehensive in the marketplace combining both personal and Internet content, putting the user in control of what they want to see," said Mike Galli, industry analyst at MRG, Inc. "Instead of connecting a PC to your TV set, you can connect the Triveni WebTop appliance and have a better TV experience with PC capabilities."

According to Dhimant, "OEMs or MSOs that adapt Triveni's appliance and/or application can reduce time to market by three to five quarters in bringing web and HDTV convergence to their customers."

In addition to viewing, uploading and sharing videos and photos from Web sites like YouTube and Flickr, iRevo enables viewers to access thousands of podcasts or look up directions or traffic on Google Maps. iRevo's intuitive on screen user interface and custom remote control makes web surfing on an HDTV a snap and iRevo uniquely enables casual communications via social networking apps like Facebook, Twitter and web e-mail; a feature that competitive offerings do not support.

iRevo delivers significantly richer interactivity and user experience than web widgets on connected HDTVs and Blu-ray Players. Devices like Roku, Vudu, and AppleTV are primarily targeted to deliver paid content, while iRevo delivers the most popular free web content, social networking applications and personal content on HDTV.

iRevo's media bridge functionality connects the HDTV, Web, and the consumer's personal devices including digital cameras, USB storage, and networked PCs. iRevo application discovers media for playback on the HDTV by using uPnP and other industry standard software protocols. iRevo delivers personalized content such as news, weather, stock quotes and radio. iRevo also features an internet radio guide provided by RadioTime, Inc.
