SmartLabs Joins RDK Community
SmartLabs, a developer of service delivery platforms for interactive digital television (IPTV, OTTtv, hybrid IPTV/DVB), advanced client applications and user interfaces and other solutions for service providers and corporations has licensed the RDK to further advance its hybrid and IP interactive TV solutions.
The Reference Design Kit (RDK) is a pre-integrated software bundle that provides a common framework for powering customer-premises equipment (CPE) from TV service providers, including set-top boxes, gateways, and converged devices. The RDK is supported by more than 160 licensees including CE manufacturers, SOCs vendors, software developers, system integrators, and TV service providers. It is administered by the RDK Management LLC, a joint venture between Comcast Cable, Time Warner Cable, and Liberty Global. It enables TV service providers to standardize certain elements of these devices, but also to easily customize the applications and user experiences that ride on top.
"SmartLabs was No 1 in Eastern Europe in 2013 for middleware, VoD and set top boxes; we see joining the RDK community as an exciting step in globalising our interactive TV solutions," stated Mikhail Grachev, SmartLabs CEO.
"We are very pleased to welcome SmartLabs as a licensee of the RDK, further demonstrating its global reach and applicability," said Jason Briggs, Senior Director, RDK Management, LLC. "Together, the RDK community is working to help accelerate the development and deployment of next-generation video services and devices for pay TV operators around the world."
