HERZLIYA, Israel, July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

New Feature Allows Simultaneous Recording of Multiple Programs to Network

Shared Folder or Network Attached Storage (NAS)

VBox Communications [http://www.vboxcomm.com/retail.html ], the pioneer of live TV
streaming to connected devices in the home, today announced that its industry-leading TV
Gateways now support Whole House DVR/PVR recording of live TV to a Windows network shared
folder or Network Attached Storage (NAS). This new capability gives users expanded storage
for content that can then be easily viewed from any device on the home network.

“The VBox TV Gateway is the only device on the market with this type of recording
capability,” noted Amir Aharonovich, VP of Marketing for VBox Communications. “Network
recording will allow families to record TV content to the same centralized location where
their other data, including music, files and photos, is stored, resulting in more
flexibility, larger storage space, fewer storage devices in the house, and reduced power

The network storage feature allows users to schedule future recordings or record live
TV directly to a Windows network shared folder on a PC or to NAS devices on the home
network. The TV Gateway streams recorded programs from either the PC’s shared folder or
NAS device to any UPnP supported application or device such as VLC, XMBC, Chrome and
Firefox web browsers, as well as the VBox free applications, on all supported devices on
the home network, such as smart phones, tablets, computers, and media streamers connected
to TVs.

For users who already have a VBox TV Gateway, setting up the network storage feature
requires the latest software update. All new devices [http://www.vboxcomm.com/retail.html
] (retailing for 150-250 Euro online) already have the network storage feature available
and will continue to support storage on USB flash drives and USB Hard Disc Drives (HDD).

VBox Communications’ industry-leading line of TV Gateways was launched in February
2014 [http://www.cnet.com/products/vbox-v-home-tv-gateway ] at Mobile World Congress in
Barcelona. The device receives broadcast live TV from terrestrial, cable and satellite
sources, converts the signal to IP at the consumer’s home, and streams it across the home
network to any connected device, leveling the playing field, and streaming high quality
broadcast TV alongside OTT content.
