BRISTOL, UK: Ocean Blue Software has ported its Sunrise HD DVB stack and Voyager HD MHEG-5 stack (including support for BBC i-player) on to the new Trident PNX847x (Apollo) chipset.
This is the latest in a series of co-operations that have resulted in Ocean Blue Software being available on successive generations of Trident STB chipsets.
Trident has said that “the latest PNX847x series of SoCs has an ARM Cortex A9 Processor, multi-format HD STB Decoders, with support for 3D graphics and advanced power management”.
Porting the Ocean Blue range of software to this next generation of media processor SoCs will result in an ideal platform for connected TV products. Philip Evans of Ocean Blue says, “This category of SoC in conjunction with Ocean Blue’s middleware will drive the next generation of connected consumer devices.”
Voyager MHEG is compliant with DTG Freeview software standards and Ocean Blue also offers MHEG profiles for Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong.
