Technicolor boxes to get SeaChange tru2way stack
SeaChange International said Technicolor will use its VividLogic tru2way software stack in a line of set-top boxes due later this year.
Technicolor will run the VividLogic software on Intel's Atom media processors.
Vince Pizzica, senior executive vice president and president of Technicolor's Digital Delivery Group, said, "Providing support for SeaChange's VividLogic software is further evidence of our strong commitment to an open ecosystem for the next generation of digital home solutions."
"The integration of SeaChange's VividLogic tru2way software stack on Intel processors represents a powerful new value proposition for cable operators and set-top manufacturers who want to deliver multi-tuner based hybrid set-tops with high-speed DOCSIS 3.0-based connectivity to the Internet to their respective customers," said Bob Ferreira, general manager of the cable segment for Intel Digital Home Group. "We are looking forward to demonstrating the results of this relationship at CES and in the marketplace itself through Technicolor products."
The Intel Atom is also at the heart of over-the-top boxes from D-Link and Iomega running Boxee's software, as well as the new Freedom Jump OTT "companion" box announced by Amino .
