Kamai 450M

Kamai 450M is ideal for multi-room video deployments and is also optimized for streaming media services. It supports MoCA to enable reliable HD video distribution throughout the home using existing in-home coax wiring.

With MoCA support, Kamai 450M is compatible with any video delivery network, including cable, FTTH, xDSL and satellite. Within a home, it provides up to 175 Mb/s throughput, nearly double the speeds of typical Ethernet networks. It also provides managed Quality of Service (QoS) which enables reliable distribution of HD video, whole-home DVR and media sharing.

Kamai 450M offers advanced applications such as an HTML5-compliant browser which provides an open and flexible platform for application development. By supporting adaptive bit-rate (ABR) streaming technology such as HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), Kamai 450M can enable continuous video delivery over an unmanaged network.

Ready-to-Deploy Hybrid TV Solution

By supporting third-party middleware and digital rights management (DRM) solutions such as Conklin Intracom, Latens, Microsoft PlayReady, Minerva, Nordija, SecureMedia, and Verimatrix, the Kamai enables you to quickly deploy a video service that also offers advanced cloud-based features for Hybrid TV and over-the-top (OTT) streaming applications. Kamai also offers advanced applications such as an HTML5-compliant browser and C/C++ SDK to enable an open and flexible platform for application development.

Digital Tuner Options for Hybrid Deployments

Kamai offers optional off-air and digital cable tuner options to help reduce retransmission fees and network bandwidth demand. Kamai supports worldwide terrestrial broadcast standards (ATSC, DVB-T, DAB, T-DMB, ISDB-T, CMMB, CTTB) and is also compatible with world-wide cable broadcast standards (DVB-C, ITU-T J.83 Annex A, B, C).

Pause Live TV (PLTV) Support

With flash drive support standard on all units, the Kamai can support features typically associated with more expensive DVR devices. With this feature, operators can offer PLTV as a standard service on non-DVR installations or have the flexibility to offer it as an add-on service. The installation of the flash drive can be performed by the consumer, saving the expense of truck rolls to upgrade the customer.

Continuous Video Delivery with Adaptive Bit-Rate Streaming

The Kamai series is ideal if you want to offer video but have a geo-graphically diverse broadband foot-print with a range of network infra-structure capabilities. By leveraging the advantages of Adaptive Bit-Rate (ABR) streaming technology, Kamai can reliably deliver HD video – across the Internet and over last mile networks of varying quality and bandwidth.
