Technicolor to launch TiVo set-tops

TV technology company Technicolor has announced plans to invest in and develop a TiVo-ready HD DVR for operators that license TiVo software.

Technicolor said it will port TiVo software to its latest DSI803 DVR. The initial implementation aims to support the initiative reported earlier this year between TiVo and conditional access company Conax that will see the companies putting TiVo technology, including its integration of IP-delivered video, into an off-the-shelf package that can be deployed by operators using Conax-certified platforms.

Technicolor’s new offering will feature a dual-tuner HD DVR with a minimum of 320GB of storage capable of recording up to 45 hours of HD or 400 hours of SD programming, broadband connectivity and a touch-sensitive front panel.
