video marketplace effros dissonance

RDK Management, a joint venture between Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Liberty Global, announced that the Reference Design Kit program now provides additional support for the Digital Video Broadcasting standard that’s widely used throughout EU and other parts of the world. RDK Management acknowledged that the advancement was made possible because of contributions by Arris that will extend the RDK’s applicability for use in DVB markets. Specifically, Arris’ support extends the RDK Media Framework (RMF) to support a common method for extracting DVB streams, and also provides an open source reference DVB implementation that can be adopted and extended by DVB-based operators and suppliers. The new RDK capability adds to previously supported DVB components such as teletext and subtitles released last year. The RDK software is now available at no cost to RDK licensees in a shared source manner, and RDK community member companies can contribute software changes and enhancements to the RDK stack. Globally, RDK has been licensed by more than 20 operators.
