Arris Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRS) and TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO) today announced a partnership to bring the award-winning TiVo experience to ARRIS customers by integrating TiVo software and cloud-based services with Arris set-top boxes.
This integration represents an ongoing collaboration between Arris and TiVo to offer global service providers a variety of platform options for delivering multiscreen, TV everywhere, and DVR experiences to subscribers. The first product of this collaboration is the DCX3635 Video Gateway with TiVo.
The DCX3635 features 6 video tuners with 8 DOCSIS downstream channels, carries 1TB of onboard storage, and is capable of supporting dual simultaneous HD video transcoding sessions.
