UK’s Pixsan licenses Comcast’s RDK

UK-based digital TV software specialist Pixsan has licensed Comcast Reference Development Kit (RDK) and will provide outsourced RDK implementations to operators, equipment manufacturers and chipset providers. 

Comcast’s RDK is designed to provide a common framework for tru2way interactive TV via IP or hybrid boxes and gateways.

“Pixsan has been developing digital TV software platforms for many years and we are particularly excited about RDK and its recent progression into European DVB markets,” said Pixsan managing director Jon Williams. “The key to success for rapid broadcast-IP uptake at all levels of the value chain, namely consumer, operator and device, needs to be a common framework approach and RDK offers our markets exactly this opportunity.”
