ng Connect Program members GameStreamer, a next generation digital distribution network for video games, and Alcatel-Lucent will demonstrate the first streaming delivery of a video game to an in-vehicle entertainment system over a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network at CES.
Passengers in the program’s LTE Connected Car will be able to browse a GameStreamer-powered store, purchase and play a game all from the in-vehicle entertainment system.
The demonstration illustrates the capabilities possible on LTE next generation wireless broadband networks as envisioned by the ng Connect Program. GameStreamer technology used to provide this capability consists of its non-linear predictive streaming and in-vehicle player application and game store.
ng Connect Program member Alcatel-Lucent supplied its industry-leading solution for end-to-end LTE network, integrating Converged Radio Access Network (RAN) and Evolved Packet Core (EPC), and delivering super fast download speeds with reduced latency, through prototype LTE modem technology.
The GameStreamer in-car video game store and streaming player delivers an on-demand game play experience and negates the need for physical media discs as players can select games from the store and immediately begin playing while the game is being streamed in real-time from the cloud.
