MEVIA a solution for Education and Safety

In January, I was in Honduras and volunteered for the “Honduras Global Foundation.”

During my presence there, I proposed a new project with an innovative  e-learning and mobile education platform for Honduras and many parts of the world, which we call MEVIAMEVIA is a product that ties educational content with two massive distribution channels, mobile and Cable TV systems. Media includes Video and Music streaming channels available in both Mobile and Cable TV. Our application also includes an innovative safety feature suitable for a third world countries.  It’s known that Honduras has major problems with violence, crime, and education. These problems are  clearly described in the following UNICEF video.  MEVIA then comes to address two major issues in the third world, education and safety.

“Fact: Honduras is a Millennial Country  with 70% of the population under 30 yrs old, however 800K honduras does not work and does not study”


HONDURAS GLOBAL

Honduras Global with the mission to create links between highly skilled and successful Hondurans abroad with Honduras and bring knowledge, exchange experiences, and develop the country. Honduras Global members include Dr. Sir Salvador Moncada, Myself,  Maya Selva, Carlos Campos, and many other renewed Hondurans, including myself as a founding member.   Honduras Global also became part of the “Marca Pais,” a government effort to market Honduras to the world with its best offering.

Mediamplify Amplifies Knowledge

Mediamplify spreads Multimedia Learning, an E-Learning Platform

 

mediamplifyOur platform, Mediamplify is a tool to deliver video and music content. Mediamplify connects multimedia content with a cloud-based infrastructure and a Cable TV systems, as well as web/tablet devices, and mobile platforms. Today, we can find many other connected devices as Chromecasts and Amazon Fire, these HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) sticks connect using WiFi to the internet and over to the Mediamplify cloud to deliver content. Mediamplify is then a great e-Learning platform with the proper content.

MEDIAMPLIFY effectively connects the cloud with a Cable TV system.

“Mediamplify is a cloud-based multimedia platform that simplifies the distribution of video and music to web, mobile, and cable TV systems. Cable operators can quickly integrate millions of STB to cloud-based content in a simplified solution. ”  http://mediamplify.com/ 

 


Cable TV  Technologies

Mediamplify is an e-learning platform for Cable TV.  As more advanced cable TV systems powered  are with DOCSIS 3.0 and other technologies.  Wikipedia defines:

”  ….The DOCSIS 3.1 suite of specifications support capacities of at least 10 Gbit/s downstream and 1 Gbit/s upstream using 4096 QAM. The new specs do away with 6 MHz and 8 MHz wide channel spacing and instead use smaller (20 kHz to 50 kHz wide) orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) subcarriers; these can be bonded inside a block spectrum that could end up being about 200 MHz wide.[5] DOCSIS 3.1 technology also includes some new energy management features that will help the cable industry reduce its energy usage, and the DOCSIS-PIE[6] algorithm to reduce Bufferbloat.”

 

By 10Gbps/s downstream and 1Gbps/s upstream uses 4096 QAM modulation and the spectrum is much higher. With a 10Gbps downstream, a cable operator can provide 3000+ HD channels at 3Mbps, and provide a set of services using the same coaxial cable as tradicional DOCSIS 1.1 to DOCSIS 2.0 cable networks.  As shown int he figure below, we can see how any platform will incorporate a TV source and a method or mechanism of media distribution.
