Technicolor is working with Intel on its latest system on a chip, the Intel Atom processor CE4200, formerly code-named Groveland. The strategic collaboration will fuel Technicolor’s plan to drive into the market a new generation of integrated broadcast and IP set-top boxes (STBs), enabling service providers to create new multi-screen, 3D, games and online video user experiences in the home.
The collaboration has allowed Technicolor to test early prototype silicon, provide technical recommendations to Intel, and prove new STB designs. Technicolor has developed an early 3D Multiview Coding (MVC) and video transcoding demonstration of the chipset capabilities to illustrate its potential in delivering the next generation TV experience. The first devices from Technicolor are expected to be in production early in 2011.
