AMSTERDAM --(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Syabas, a leading provider of Home Media Entertainment, and VBox Communications, a private company partially owned by Optibase, a provider of converged digital broadcast and IPTV solutions, announce an innovative solution that enables the reception of converged Home Entertainment Media with Live TV for in home IP distribution.

VBox’s TV Gateway is a part of the VBox family of products for the Live TV market. It is a HDTV receiver that builds optimized streams for live broadcast video, audio, and data. The VBox TV Gateway acts as a router converting incoming DVB to outgoing IP. Using this technology is very simple: connect the incoming coax and the outgoing IP, the Gateway does all the rest. It receives a TV broadcast in the same manner as a digital IP STB, requiring no changes in either broadcast infrastructure or in the consumers’ premises.

Syabas, a leading provider of home entertainment device software and hardware and makers of the award-winning Popcorn Hour line of Networked Media Tanks and the PopBox™, today announced with VBox the launch of a revolutionary new device that will allow the reception of Home Entertainment Media and Live TV from a single device.

“Adding Live TV reception to the Popcorn Hour is a natural extension of Popcorn Hour offerings for Home users,” said TL Lim, President Syabas. “This collaboration enables Popcorn Hour users to receive Live TV without adding an additional device.”

"It is a pleasure to cooperate with our partner Syabas on this solution," said Shlomo Turgeman, CEO of VBox. "Supporting premium broadcast content with the VBox TV Gateway and Popcorn Hour Network Media Tanks extends the range of solutions to provide 'anywhere access' for TV content throughout the home."
