Geniatech Supercharges Broadband TV With Octoshape Infinite HD-M Enabled Devices.

Geniatech adds support for the Infinite HD-M multicast enabled ecosystem

ATLANTA -- Octoshape, an industry leader in cloud-based global streaming technologies, announced today a partnership with Shenzen based Geniatech Inc., LTD. The partnership enables the wide range of Geniatech Android TV devices to connect to Octoshape's Infinite HD-M Federated Linear Broadband TV Platform, an industry-first service that deploys Multicast over broadband for high quality linear video delivery.

Geniatech's adoption of Octoshape's technology brings the scale, quality and economics of traditional broadcast TV to broadband connected devices in the living room. With the Infinite HD-M "flat rate per channel" pricing model for linear channels, broadcasters can now deliver linear video with predictable and affordable economics to the television over Geniatech devices.

"We are excited to play a role in the evolution of the OTT market," said Fang Jijun, General Manager of Geniatech. "We constantly look to integrate technology solutions that increase the ability for consumers to enjoy high quality content using our devices. The Infinite HD-M solution enables these high quality video experiences for the broadband masses."

"The partnership with Geniatech is an integral part of our strategy to extend our global Infinite HD-M ecosystem to the television," says Michael Koehn Milland, CEO of Octoshape. "Geniatech's products and their drive for innovation combined with our technologies will take the broadband TV experience of our customers to a new level."

Octoshape's federated linear broadband TV ecosystem will continue to expand globally throughout 2012 in carefully planned phases, adding content contribution partners, Tier 1 broadband providers, connected television manufacturers and conditional access providers.
