Technicolor to showcase comprehensive range of technologies at CES

The company is showcasing an extensive portfolio of offerings that integrate open technologies.

MUMBAI: Technicolor Connected Home to demonstrate a comprehensive range of technologies -- including DOCSIS 3.1,Android TV and Reference Design Kit (RDK), Wi-Fi 6, 6Ghz Wi-Fi, 5G, and Fiber Interoperability solutions at CES conference in Las Vegas January 7-10, 2020.

“Over the course of 2020, the network service provider (NSP) community will continue to invest in open platform-based solutions thereby maximizing the number of revenue-generating services that can be delivered to consumers. This is true for access technologies that bring broadband performance over cable, fibre and wireless to consumers, as well as the set-top box (STB) and Wi-Fi infrastructures that
ensure ubiquitous, intelligent and high-quality connectivity within their homes,” says  Technicolor Connected Home Deputy CEO and President Luis Martinez Amago.

To support this trend, Technicolor is showcasing an extensive portfolio of offerings that integrate open technologies -- like Android TV and RDK middleware – into customer premises equipment (CPE) that can be rapidly deployed by NSPs around the world.

Specific solutions to be featured during CES 2020 include Technicolor Connected Home’s:

● JADE -- a 4K Ultra HD STB that contains next generation 16nm silicon debuting the latest technology standards -- such as Wi-Fi 6 and AV1 decoding in a small customizable design. This receiver, running on both Android TV and RDK, benefits from a powerful quad-core processor, Bluetooth 5.0 technology and an innovative stackable module enabling flexibility in the introduction of value-added services such as Digital Video Recording (DVR), far field voice control and Internet of Things (IoT).

● RUBY -- an affordable yet fully equipped STB featuring Android P, Wi-Fi 5 as well as Bluetooth and Zwave technologies that support IoT use cases. The STB has integrated a range of proven technologies in a cost-effective manner to ensure high-quality connected experiences -- from audio streaming with Bluetooth headphones to Wi-Fi babycam displays and IoT Zwave lighting systems. It is designed to support video services managed by operators as well as OTT offerings from providers like Google, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and others.

● Wi-Fi XL -- a comprehensive wireless network solution that improves the coverage and quality of connectivity throughout the home while managing the complexity associated with the rapid rise of devices connecting to the Wi-Fi network. Wi-Fi XL (whole home coverage solution) demonstrates how gateways and extenders featuring Wi-Fi 6, EasyMesh and AirTies work together seamlessly. Wi-Fi 6 latency and throughput improvements are also being demonstrated in highly demanding situations such as when playing resource-intensive games like Fortnite while watching high-quality video programming.

● EasyMesh Roaming and Onboarding via NAVIGate -- a demonstration of Technicolor Connected Home’s commitment to improving in-home wireless performance throughout the home in an intuitive manner. This will illustrate how a more user-friendly Wi-Fi environment lays the foundation for NSPs to deploy new services.

● Open Services Platform – a showcase the flexibility and power of containers and third-party applications (from key technology partners like CujoAI, Alexa, SmartThings) can enhance the relationship that NSPs have with their subscribers. In order to have a scalable model for delivering new application-based services, NSPs must decouple any dedicated dependencies between hardware and software. Technicolor has developed a broad set of offerings based on HOMEWARE and RDK-B to mix and match services involving different software developer-based communities.

● 5G Gateway -- an exhibit of the role that this new fixed wireless access (FWA) technology can play in delivering broadband services to consumers.

● Technicolor Fiber Labs -- an initiative that is being used by NSP customers and key technology partners to continuously test the latest developments in optical line termination (OLT) technology to ensure maximum compliance of all fiber products with widely deployed interoperability standards.

● Low Latency Demo with Google/3SS -- a joint initiative that showcases a dual hardware decode and software decode function on top of Android TV to achieve a multi-screen presentation. The demonstration will compare the delay between live broadcast and live OTT.

● STB-based Targeted Advertising – a demonstration featuring the strategic relationship with Hoppr. This illustrates how NSPs can tap into new, important and sustainable streams of advertising revenue through dedicated STB-embedded software and dedicated backend components. The STB interacts with auction servers to support targeted advertisement insertion based on end-user consumption and behavior.

These demonstrations will be featured at the company’s exhibit suites (30-315 and 30-317) located on the 30 th floor of The Venetian Hotel. Experts and executives will be on hand to discuss leading-edge developments on these connected home technologies and their impact on the industry.
