LAS VEGAS -- Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH) today announced it is developing a next generation video client based on hardware and software specifications developed by Comcast. Bundled with a multituner gateway from cable operators, the MediaPlay set top box will deliver IP video to any screen in the home. The Technicolor MediaPlay client solution has been built upon Entropic’s TSC188 CPU, boasting over 5000 DMIPS with a dual-core ARM® Cortex™ A9 core architecture that provides acceleration for all types of media processing. Further it supports home networking via its bundled MoCA 1.1 silicon and software solution to ensure a powerful, stable connectivity backbone. The Entropic-powered Technicolor MediaPlay client solution supports 3D video and graphics to render the most advanced interfaces based on HTML5 or Adobe Flash. The Technicolor solution is fully compliant with the Comcast-developed X1 client-server architecture, and supports DTCP-IP technology and multiple Digital Rights Management (DRM) to offer full content security over MoCA home networks. By leveraging the RDK (Reference Design Kit) software specification developed by Comcast, Technicolor MediaPlay offers an open solution to develop and deploy new services and applications more efficiently across heterogeneous cable platforms.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
