Giganettv's Breakthrough Multi-Tasking Video Portal Offers Real-Time Content Streams
By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor
Giga Entertainment Media (GEM (News - Alert)), a media technology development company, today announced its Giganettv proprietary technology, which allows 30 synchronized real-time content streams on one site and provides unique interactive viewing and communications enhancement features, such as existing live programming, VOD and movie lineups.
Giganettv proprietary technology will be available to worldwide cable, satellite and other content providers and their subscribers during the first quarter of 2014.
Giganettv is using the Adobe (News - Alert) MAX award-winning technology including some updated operating platforms to enhance this diverse digital viewing and uniquely personalized interactive multi-tasking experience.
GEM subscriber will get opportunity to view multiple simultaneous content streams by controlling the viewing and communications interfaces in real time.
Steven Pulisic, who recently joined the company as senior vice president of marketing, said, "I believe Giganettv technology is that breakthrough technology to be a game-changer for cable. It truly represents a quantum leap in digital multi-tasking. Going forward, it will be the technology that will help cable TV survive the online video onslaught."
A recent CableVision ad explained that it allows its viewers to watch 10 channels simultaneously. With consideration of Giganettv's technological offering, this claim is already hopelessly outdated.
Giganettv's breakthrough technology is designed and created by twinbrothers A.J. Castiglia and Alex Castiglia. The brothers have also designed and created a few Apps, which are currently available in the App Store. Both the brothers know that today people between the ages of 15-40 are already multi-tasking on multiple devices at with their laptops, watching TV and sending texts from their phones.
James C. Dolan, CEO of CableVision Systems in New York, remarked in a statement, “Ultimately, over the long term, I think that the whole video product is eventually going to go to the Internet.”
While this does not necessarily foretell the future of cable, it means cable will no longer be the providers of the most desirable content and will be satisfied to simply carry the content of others.
