Amulet IPTV Receiver
The Amulet IPTV receiver is the latest addition to Entone’s line of cost-effective and compact high-definition (HD) Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) solutions. Amulet is a multi-functional IPTV receiver with MPEG-4 (AVC/H.264) HD and whole-home DVR capabilities that integrates easily with popular home-networking and broadband services. These robust features enable service providers to increase their subscriber base and generate more revenue by offering subscribers more advanced services and an enhanced user experience without the hassles of costly equipment replacements or truck rolls.
Crescendo IAD extends the managed portion of the operators’ broadband networks out to individual subscribers’ homes. It consolidates key elements of a voice, video and data service into one convenient device. Coupled with Entone’s family of IPTV set-top boxes, gateways and media hubs, Crescendo dramatically reduces the cost for operators to install, provision and support residential triple play services.
