SAN JOSE, Calif. -- S3 Group, an international digital TV company that enables programmers and operators to accelerate the end-to-end delivery of multi-screen TV, announced today that it has licensed the Comcast Reference Design Kit (RDK) and will now provide its professional services to integrate the RDK onto set-top box (STB) platforms. The Comcast RDK is a pre-integrated software bundle that creates a common framework for powering tru2way®, IP or hybrid set-top boxes and gateway devices to accelerate the development and deployment of next-generation video services.

Comcast licenses the RDK to OEMs, SIs, SOCs, software vendors as well as MVPDs to create a community of innovators focused on bringing rich, multi-screen TV home entertainment experiences to consumers faster. S3 Group will support the RDK’s innovative approach by harnessing its trusted system integration experience for multi-screen digital TV devices, along with its StormTest® suite of automated testing solutions, to ensure industry-leading quality and timely deployment of devices to the end customer.

“The Comcast RDK Initiative marks an important moment for our industry. Our licensing deal with Comcast provides crucial added value for those operators looking to implement the RDK – which can now be accomplished utilizing the expertise from S3 Group that they’ve come to know and trust,” said Philip Brennan, VP TV Technology, S3 Group. “Our support of the Comcast RDK, combined with more than 18 years’ experience in digital TV system integration and solution development, is a testament to why S3 Group is the optimal choice for operators who are under increasing pressure to deliver reliable platforms and best QoE (Quality of Experience) to their customers.”
