What do you want to see when you turn on the TV?
Are you one of the millions who have said good-bye to cable, dish, and satellite because you get more of what you want online for a whole lot less?
Wouldn't it be perfect if you could have everything you get from your online experience on the biggest screen in your home?
Are you a content, application or game developer who's as pumped as we are about the opportunities open source platforms provide?
What if you could create games, apps, films, and other content and put them on a medium that is viewed across the globe?
What if you could gain access to all of this from one place? and take with you anywhere you go...
It's the next revolution in multimedia history!

TROVA is a multiscreen player that gives you the ability to watch what you want, when you want, and a whole lot more: From films, to regular TV channels, to video on demand, movies and gaming. It also allows you to access services, apps, financial tools, telemedicine and business applications, and even user-generated content. TROVA is also a tool that allows you to produce multimedia content and products and promote them on TROVA's network across the globe.
It's the mightiest mini. It's open. It's unlimited. And it kicks some serious butt.
TROVA is Ninja
TROVA is the smallest, sleekest set-top box available. It clips to the thinnest screens and virtually disappears on any media console.
The TROVA box will cost $99. Buy it once and take it, and everything you want to watch, with you everywhere you go.
The TROVA media receiver console practically disappears when it sits on any thin screen. It weighs as much as a stick of butter, and stands a half-inch high. It's two inches deep and eight and a half inches wide. The attachment clip is adjustable to fit any modern television or thin screen. The unit connects via HDMI for optimal visual and audio feedback. There are ports on the back for all digital devices.
TROVA is Mobile
Form follows function with TROVA. It gives you complete control of your multimedia content and the ability to take that content with you anywhere.
Put TROVA in your pocket or purse and watch your unique content on any screen, anywhere you go.
Unique to its design, TROVA comes with a built-in high resolution HD camera, so you can shoot, stream, and upload all your images to your favorite social media sites. There’s an internal mic, so you can talk on video chat, and an analog audio port output gives you high fidelity sound control.
TROVA works its magic in the cloud with a broadband internet connection. It also features a micro SD card reader, so you can upload pictures from a camera or cell phone. Two USB ports provide additional storage, and the ability to connect third party devices like gaming controllers or a full-sized keyboard.
The TROVA remote has two sides: One ergonomically designed face for traditional browsing. The other has unique features, including a full keyboard, a shortcut function, and a track-pad. The track-pad can be used to navigate through menus when browsing, and it doubles as a fingerprint reader for user authentication. The remote connects via Bluetooth and has a rechargeable battery pack that connects to one of TROVA’s USB ports for convenient charging.
TROVA is Open
TROVA combines the best aspects of television and internet into a state-of-the-art device and cloud platform.
TROVA gives you the ability to link all of your digital devices directly to the best screen in your home.
It's your television, do what you want with it. TROVA will change the way we interact with media in our daily lives for the better. Content, usage, and cost – it’s all up to you. Develop a game, program, app, film, etc. for TROVA and bring it to market on the Trova network.
You don't have to let service providers dictate content to you. They make you choose packages based on their company's wants and needs, not yours. That business model is outdated. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people are choosing to walk away from it, because there are more flexible “over the top” options available online.The problem is: Sure, you can watch whatever film you want, do your banking, or order a pizza from your laptop, smart phone or tablet, but none of them can beat the television screen when it comes to a quality viewing experience. TROVA is the solution.
TROVA is Cloud
TROVA's content is unlimited and it works with virtually any content that it makes sense to view on your TV.
TROVA is customized for your specific needs. It’s not limited to movies, social, media, and music. It can also be used to interact with bill pay, banking, businesses, schools, telemedicine and medical records, governmental agencies and other organizations.
