OpenTV and Silicon & Software Systems (S3) have announced further collaboration in enabling the rapid deployment of HD, PVR and IPTV set-top box (STB) solutions.
S3 recently extended its coLinkTV adaptation software product to support OpenTV's IPTV functionality, delivering a competitive advantage to manufacturers and operators wishing to deploy interactive STBs and PVRs. OpenTV has engaged S3 to integrate its Core2 and PVR2 middleware with S3's coLinkTV on advanced IPTV set-top boxes.
coLinkTV delivers STB manufacturers and pay TV operators the key adaptation software required to rapidly deploy secure, interactive, high definition STB and PVR solutions for cable, satellite, terrestrial and IPTV networks. It provides a key porting layer between the OpenTV middleware and STMicroelectronics' STi71xx and STi51xx processor families, enabling rapid deployment of STBs.
