A Toronto-based startup will soon unveil technology that will allow broadcast-quality digital video to be streamed wirelessly to multiple televisions and other consumer electronics devices without the need for duplicate set-top boxes. ViXS Systems Inc. has developed a chip set that turns the digital cable box into a home gateway that puts multiple televisions, PCs and other devices on the same Internet Protocol (IP) network. If the technology lives up to expectations, it will essentially allow for the delivery of greater digital services for less money.
