Lineo, Metrowerks, and Motorola Broadband Communications Sector have joined forces to form Triarc Content Labs, in order to facilitate the design and development of Linux-based, advanced interactive-TV software applications on Motorola's DCT5000 family of interactive digital set-tops.

Under the joint venture, Lineo will provide its Lineo Embedix digital media core, an embedded Linux system software platform for set-top terminals that enables delivery of advanced-interactive digital content. Metrowerks will supply CodeWarrior development tools, which are widely used in the wireless and consumer products industries to create applications and content. In addition, Motorola will also provide its expertise in advanced-interactive digital cable technology, systems integration and deployment.

Triarc is expected to provide the broadband industry with an independent source for development, testing and integration of Linux-based content and applications. This resource is expected to speed time-to-market of new and interactive services such as pay-per-view (PPV), video-on-demand (VOD), games, Web browsers, program guides, personal video recorders (PVRs), home networking and streaming media.
