A sneak preview of the NDS Master User Interface (UI), an NDS next generation product, will also be introduced. The NDS Master UI will enable viewers to watch what they want, when and where they want to, through a quick and simple to use navigation system operating across multiple devices. The Master UI is a next generation technology which can be used in place of an Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) and will be ready for deployment later in 2008.
Also on display will be the NDS XTV™ DVR Digital Video Recorder. For operators, DVRs attract customers, enhance stickiness, and reduce churn. But DVRs do far more than just make it easy to watch TV. They can generate important new revenues for pay-TV business. In today's digital age, TV screens when coupled with Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) become the hub of home entertainment. By connecting a variety of CE devices through the DVR - PMPs (Portable Media Players), MP3 players, portable game consoles, mobile phones, digital cameras and printers - one can enjoy more applications and services that revolutionize the way we are entertained and the way we control our lives. NDS is the market leading DVR solution provider with more than 10.4 million NDS-enabled DVRs deployed around the world.
