Eyecon Technologies and Syabas Partner to Provide the Ultimate Handheld Entertainment Experience

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - December 17, 2010) - Eyecon Technologies, a leading provider of media experience platforms, and Syabas, a global provider of over-the-top set-top software and hardware, and makers of the award-winning Popcorn Hour and Popbox Jukeboxes, announced today that they partnered to introduce the Eyecon solution on the Syabas platforms.

With the Eyecon application installed on an Android, iPhone or iPad/iPod, Syabas users can search and preview local and internet content on their mobile device, and use the mobile device to play it on the TV through the Syabas box."One of the key challenges users are facing today is how to easily navigate through multiple content sources," said Raviv Moore, Eyecon's VP of Business Operations. "The combination of Syabas' devices and Eyecon's application enables users to easily find content and enjoy it on their television. In addition, unlike other solutions in the market, Eyecon enables consumers to use their existing devices from a wide variety of manufacturers."

This joint solution provides an enhanced "AirPlay" like experience to any consumer with a Syabas STB and a mobile smartdevice. Unlike Apple AirPlay, Eyecon is based on open architecture that supports: Android and Apple devices, any home content library including iTunes and many internet content sources, such as Facebook.

"Popcorn Hour users enjoy content from a growing number of internet sources as well as their home libraries," said Armando Lopez, VP of Strategic Product Marketing, Syabas. "Using the Smartphone as a personal UI streamlines the content discovery and control process. The introduction of Eyecon's second screen UI application with our devices maximizes the overall user experience."
