S&T launches RedKey 2 graphical capabilities for MHEG-5 receiver
Strategy & Technology (S&T) introduced its new MHEG-5 receiver engine RedKey 2 with full HD graphical capabilities to the European market at IBC2008.
RedKey 2 is a software receiver engine that adds MHEG-5 interactive TV middleware to set-top boxes and integrated digital television sets (iDTV). It provides enhancements over its predecessor and has been designed to address the needs of the many emerging interactive TV markets.
RedKey 2 includes enhanced color rendering, anti-aliased fonts and the accurate reproduction of HD graphics assets. It also offers functionality that supports the MHEG Interaction Channel specification — an IP-based return channel. The new engine also has an enhanced font renderer that supports downloadable fonts.
