HORSHAM, Pa. -- As the TV viewing experience evolves with more connected devices in the home than ever before, service providers must enable the anytime, anyplace, any screen experience that viewers demand. To achieve this, Motorola Mobility is licensing the Reference Design Kit (RDK) from Comcast, which significantly improves the set-top box development cycle, driving the evolution of TV through innovative hardware and software technologies.

The RDK is a pre-integrated software bundle that creates a common framework for powering tru2way®, IP or hybrid set-top boxes and video gateway devices. It accelerates the development and deployment of next-generation video services such as cloud-based functionalities like Video on Demand (VOD), and improved guide experiences with richer graphics and better search functionality. Comcast licenses the RDK to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), semiconductor manufacturers, software vendors and multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) to create a community of innovators focused on bringing rich, multi-screen TV home entertainment experiences to consumers faster.

“Our goal is to work closely with our operator customers to provide consumers with simple and intuitive entertainment experiences so they can enjoy their content anytime, anywhere, on any screen,” said Larry Robinson, Motorola Mobility Senior Vice President and General Manager, Home Devices. “We’ve worked closely with Comcast as a strategic and innovative partner for many years, and we’re excited to license the RDK as a smart, integrated solution to help move the industry forward in the evolution of TV.”
