equipment manufacturers (OEMs), service providers and retail chains the
technology to develop and offer video streaming acceleration-enabled
end-devices for the home.

for OEMs, retail chains and service providers to deliver a unique value to
their customers." said Eli Fux, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of

in the home with no picture freezes or frustrating delays."
The WebTView Accelerator is designed to resolve broadband bottlenecks and
maximize bandwidth connectivity for internet video streaming devices. The
WebTView Accelerator can be used as a client-side solution without any change
from the content provider's side. Any home device, including PCs, gaming
consoles, and broadband TVs, Digital Media Players, mobile devices, and other
video streaming devices can seamlessly leverage the product in order to
deliver unprecedented quality of OTT streaming from any Internet video
"We're thrilled to see WebTView leverage Marvell's technology into the
accelerator for OTT video streaming. Plug Computing has fast become the
solution to power emerging technologies for the connected consumer," said Dr.
Simon Milner, Vice President and General Manager of the Enterprise Business
Unit, Consumer and Communications Business Group at Marvell Semiconductor.
"As a key tool for the always-on lifestyle, and now with new high performance
features, the ARMADA-300 family System-on-Chip, at the heart of the WebTView
Accelerator, offers highest processing performance and smallest footprint in
this exciting new product category."
The Marvell SheevaPlug is designed to enable high-performance, always on,
always connected, and environmentally friendly computing readily available
for developers and end-users. A Plug computer is small enough to plug
directly into a wall socket and is designed to draw so little power that it
can be left on all of the time. Unlike other embedded devices in the home, it
