Comprehensive Engineering Services Combined With Celstream's Solution Accelerators Reduce Time-to-Market and Lead to Faster Development of Innovative, Robust and Interoperable Consumer Electronic Products for the Digital Home

BANGALORE, INDIA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2009) - Digital convergence, wireless connectivity, broadband Internet access and product miniaturization has profoundly impacted the "connected home" experience. Yet, developers of home entertainment technology products continue to face several hurdles in meeting consumer demands for feature-rich, interoperable and affordable home entertainment solutions. To address these challenges, Celstream Technologies, a leading global Product Engineering Services company, today announced the availability of its Solution Accelerators, which are readily available components and near-ready ecosystems, tailored specifically for the digital home entertainment market.

"Product companies that create home entertainment and other devices within the connected home environment are faced with the need to rapidly roll-out attractive, easy-to-use products that provide interoperability across a wide range of devices and protocols, while meeting consumers' desire for mobility and on-demand usage of available content," said Anand Kuppuswamy, corporate manager - Marketing and Strategy, Celstream. "These factors, coupled with a growing need for robustness and quality that reduce the cost of maintenance, can prove daunting to even the most experienced product companies. For more than a decade, Celstream has leveraged its domain expertise and technical competencies to help the international product development community rapidly meet these types of challenging market demands."

"As an increasing number of audio/video electronic devices migrate into the wireless multimedia environment, research is beginning to show strong consumer interest in the idea of an interoperable entertainment solution. As such, Celstream's Solution Accelerators, including our PRO2X™, ReAL OPD™, and Services Package, can be customized to support the implementation of highly differentiated products," continued Kuppuswamy.

Through its Solution Accelerators, Celstream enables product companies to speed time-to-market and reduce the development costs of devices in the connected home, while helping the customer focus on the primary goal of providing a viewer with wholesome, enriching and interactive home entertainment. Celstream has vast experience in working with customers on areas critical to a networked home environment. In the recent past, customers have leveraged Celstream's expertise to develop Set-Top Boxes (STBs). Celstream's team of experts has been involved in integration of driver software with middleware, optimization and customization of drivers, interoperability testing and diagnostic & production support.

Celstream has also been enabling remote management of home entertainment devices by utilizing TR-069, a consumer premises equipment WAN management protocol (CWMP). The company leverages its Solution Accelerators to implement the remote management and monitoring for consumer premises equipment such as STBs and broadband access products.

In addition, Celstream has rich experience in enabling products to comply with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) standards to facilitate seamless interoperability by utilizing its suite of Solution Accelerators.
