Metrological Joins RDK Community
ROTTERDAM, Netherlands -- Metrological, provider of the cloud-based Application Platform for TV Apps, today announced that it has joined the RDK (Reference Design Kit) Community.
Metrological joins more than 160 community members. These comprise chip vendors, OEM hardware manufacturers, app developers and system integrators. Members use the RDK to provide a common underlying technology layer that shortens the development cycle for TV set top boxes and apps.
The RDK is a pre-integrated software bundle that provides a common framework for powering customer-premises equipment (CPE) from TV service providers, including set-top boxes, gateways, and converged devices. The RDK was created to accelerate the deployment of next-gen video products and services. It enables TV service providers to standardize certain elements of these devices, but also to easily customize the applications and user experiences that ride on top.
