MatrixStream Technologies Inc. will be demonstrating at this week's International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) what it touts as the world's first H.264 AVC (advance video codec) Video on Demand (VOD) and IPTV STB and PC player capable of the highest high definition (HD) signal formats with 1080 x 1920 pixels.

According to the company, the 1020HD STB will match and even exceed broadcast and satellite quality video over any broadband network the same way that VoIP can be used over any broadband connection. Unlike most IPTV and VOD solutions on the market today, which are bogged down by broadband bandwidth congestion and integration issues, proprietary MatrixStream technology leverages proprietary H.264 end-to-end solution, allowing viewers to watch videos in DVD or HD over any best effort broadband; capable of instant VOD, streaming DVD-quality video in real time, said the press release.

MatrixStream will be making the 1020HD available for trials in late January 2006 with a consumer edition scheduled for production by the end of Q1 2006. Features to be included are interactive menus and e-commerce capabilities tied to MatrixStream's dynamic advertising management (DAM) technology, which targets advertising based on individual user's preferences and interests.

The company will also be launching its IMX1100 PC Player later this month from a client's website, "Movie 99." The PC Player will feature over 300 free channels from around the world and 150 free DVD and HD quality movie clips.
