Macrovision licensing Connected Platform to STB maker
Macrovision Corp.  has entered into a license agreement with a leading set-top box manufacturer that will allow the unnamed manufacturer to utilize Macrovision’s Connected Platform in its digital STBs in the North American cable market.
Cable operators and manufacturers are adopting technologies that bridge the gap between the PC and STBs.
Macrovision's Connected Platform enables hardware providers to create wired and wireless digital home products that allow users to discover, browse, search and enjoy personal content on their TV.
The platform enables users to connect between the two silos of digital entertainment and gives next-gen STBs the capability to acquire streamed music, photos and video from PCs and networked storage devices.
