Bell Aliant’s New Twitter App Makes Television a More Social Activity

By admin, June 1, 2012 5:49 pm

While many people don’t think of television as a social activity, recent advancements in Internet connectivity and portable media devices have done quite a job on turning that concept around. And with a growing number of people wanting to multi task their television and Internet experiences; providers like Bell Aliant?(News – Alert) are looking to capitalize on that desire, by bringing out a new Twitter app.

Bell Aliant’s Twitter?(News – Alert) app for FiberOP TV joins Bell Aliant’s Facebook app in providing part of the social Web-based experience that Canadian users—particularly those around Halifax—are looking for. Specifically, Bell Aliant cites reports that suggest that fully 73 percent of Atlantic Canadians are looking for the multitasking experience, and looks to provide that accordingly. And Bell Aliant isn’t just putting the tools in users’ hands and hoping they go somewhere with them on their own, oh no. casino online . Bell Aliant also has specific plans for these tools, including a “Tweet On Your TV” contest that allows users to do exactly what the name implies. Geared toward the season finale of American Idol, customers will be able to follow Bell Aliant’s twitter feed, log into the Twitter app on their televisions, and then using the app in question tweet the show they’re watching. Those customers tweeting that they’re watching American Idol will be placed in a drawing for free FiberOP service for a year, which in Halifax is worth around $1,000.

And while we’ve seen for some time now that people enjoy having an Internet connection near to hand, whether it be on their tablets or on their laptops, Canadian users are developing a particular fondness for the service, as evidenced by a set of statistics Bell Aliant unleashed to go along with their announcement. Specifically, one in three Atlantic Canadians spend at least 15 hours a week on the Internet. According to SoftPerfect, 64-bit versions of operating systems are also supported.. Also, 71 percent would give up chocolate to keep their TV service, and no less than 71 percent of Atlantic Canadians (specifically, Islanders—the numbers get higher elsewhere to include 72 percent of Nova Scotians, 75 percent of New Brunswickers, and a hefty 83 percent of Newfoundlanders) like the idea of putting their televisions to work as Internet browsers.

There are a variety of reasons for this, of course, between interest in avoiding commercials or getting better acquainted with programs currently on. But allowing users to rapidly identify actors or directors via the Internet and having that connection near to hand is easy. The combination can be even more exciting, and it’s plain to see why Canadians—among others—want the ability so deeply. Whether or not Bell Aliant will continue in this path remains to be seen, but all cable providers should find an audience to welcome it when it does arrive.

LUMO High-Density Fiber Converter Series Introduced by Miranda

By admin, April 10, 2012 12:13 am

Miranda Technologies (News РAlert) Inc. has unveiled their much awaited high-density fiber converter series named LUMO.

According to the company, the new LUMO offers the best density that can convert 36 signals in a 1RU frame and works as a standalone device to provide a very low impact block when compared with other standalone converters.

In addition, the new LUMO includes dual redundant power supplies and frame controller with dual redundant IP-connections that can be used for comprehensive system monitoring and frame health alarming.

This product also helps users with cable management to address cable dressing concerns. LUMO comes with fiber connectivity on one side of the unit while coax is on the other, providing for easy separation of the heavier copper cable from the lighter fiber.

“As facilities ready themselves to carry 3Gbps signals across their infrastructures, fiber has become the cable of choice for many,” says Jean-Marc d’Anjou, Miranda’s vice president of Infrastructure. “Fiber cables are much more cost effective than coax, they are lighter, and take up much less space. Additionally, many system integrators now have the experience and training for installing fiber, so the cost of installation has come down considerably. Most important, though, is quality. Fiber offers the best signal integrity for high-bandwidth 3Gbps signals, and at much longer cable distances. It’s also impermeable to noise or other electromagnetic interferences.”

The company is currently offering the new LUMO as SMPTE-compliant fiber SFP modules and is currently available in regular 1310nm and CWDM wavelengths, when married with company’s optical CWDM mux/demux, 2 fiber cables.

For many years, Miranda Technologies has been offering hardware and software solutions for the television broadcast, cable, satellite and IPTV¬†(News who is justin bieber Timberlake also noticed the talent of the boy and wanted to sign a contract with him..gif.gif” /> – Alert) industry. Its solutions span the full breadth of television operations, including production, playout, and delivery.

The company’s head office is located in Montreal, and it has regional facilities in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and mainland China.

In other news, Miranda Technologies Inc. successfully added a new channel to a leading broadcaster’s service only three days after the station placed the order.
