Technicolor partners with Qualcomm on SVELTE set-top

Technicolor and Qualcomm Technologies have partnered to produce a new set-top box known as SVELTE (Stimulating Video Experience over LTE).

The set-top features LTE technology, terrestrial broadcast and Android OS and its media centre will also include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, which is designed to offer seamless connectivity, rich TV viewing experiences and console-quality gaming.

“Thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Technicolor had the opportunity to swiftly integrate its core set-top box software assets into high quality Android deliveries, reducing the time to market while focusing on the 10 foot screen experience,” said Michel Rahier, president of Connected Home, Technicolor.

Raj Talluri, senior vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, added: “This collaboration is a great way to demonstrate Technicolor’s leadership in media and broadcast, as well as our technical leadership in connectivity and advanced media processors to deliver smarter and more connected experiences with the TV.”
