Agora 5

Agora combines the features of a media gateway, home network storage and transcoding for enabling next-generation of services with maximum flexibility.

Our Agora Media Server provides an evolutionary path to an all IP world. The latest Agora incorporates the industry’s most advanced technology for delivering an integrated Hybrid TV service that combines linear TV and cloud services (OTT) over existing cable or IPTV networks.

Support the most avid TV enthusiasts by allowing them to watch and record multiple shows simultaneously. With eight (8) built-in tuners and enough storage to hold over 600 hours of HD programming, Agora eliminates recording conflicts and provides an uncompromised entertainment experience.

BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE (BYOD) SUPPORT

Leveraging Agora’s built in transcoding functions, Agora enables operators to extend the TV service to all IP enabled viewing devices such as tablets, PCs, smart TVs and smart phones. With Agora, operators can begin to leverage these 3rd-party devices to reduce the cost per subscriber by reducing the number of subsidized devices in the home. At the same time, subscribers are introduced to a rich entertainment experience they soon find they can’t live without.
