Videon Showcases Its Ultra HD Blu-ray and Streaming Media Software Solutions on STMicroelectronics Set-top Box Platform at IBC 2015

State College, PA  -- Videon Central, Inc. will demonstrate its Ultra HD Blu-ray and streaming media software solutions on STMicroelectronics’ set-top box platform at the IBC 2015 exhibition in Amsterdam, Sept. 11-15, 2015.

The two companies have collaborated to optimize Videon’s Ultra HD Blu-ray and streaming media software integration on ST’s STiH418 Ultra HD platform, resulting in the fast availability of high-quality Ultra HD Blu-ray on ST’s Cannes/Monaco 4K SoC-based products.

Videon’s upcoming product development will also be ported on this platform that will become the core of the Ultra HD System-on-a-Module (SoM) that the company will release this fall.

“At Videon we’re excited to play a role in ushering in some of the first Ultra HD devices to the market,” said Todd Erdley, president and CEO of Videon. “Together with ST, we’re pleased to offer our customers a way to accelerate their efforts and focus on bringing those customers’ products to market fast.”

“Videon is an important ecosystem partner, and the collaboration to integrate Ultra HD Blu-ray software on ST’s set-top box SoCs creates an attractive value proposition for our customers,” said Eric Benoit, Headed Product Line Director, Digital Product Group at STMicroelectronics.  

ST’s latest set-top box SoC platform is a perfect fit for Videon’s software solution, with features that include high-quality video support and multi-screen streaming, as well as best-in-class video graphics and output quality with no chroma down-sampling and a 10-bit color depth from source to TV. The STiH418 platform is poised to build on the market’s first Ultra HDp60 deployments, expected later this year.

ST and Videon will demonstrate their joint efforts in ST’s private demo suite at IBC 2015.
