Technical Operations Inc. Pulse~LINK is a contributing member of HANA and will debut its CWaveÔ Gigabit UWB technology at the conference.
HANA’s mission is to create industry design guidelines, utilizing existing technology and specifications that will help enable consumers to:
· View, pause and record 5+ HD channels simultaneously without compromising quality of service;
· View, pause and record HD stored on a PVR from anywhere in the home;
· Share personal content from PCs to AV devices while keeping protected content secure;
· Control all AV devices and access content with just a single remote per room; and
· Add any device to the home network with just one cable.
HANA-compliant products will include HDTVs, next-generation DVD players, personal video recorders, set top cable boxes and home theater systems. The first commercial products are expected to be available later this year.
