Keywords:Alticast? DVB-MHP? digital set-top boxes?

STMicroelectronics and Alticast have agreed to jointly develop and market a complete Digital Video BroadcastingMultimedia Home Platform (DVB-MHP) reference solution for digital set-top boxes.

Under the agreement, the parties will also collaboratively produce a port of Alticast's AltiCaptor MHP middleware on the latest member of STMicroelectronics' OMEGA family of set-top box decoders, the STi5514.

The integration will be achieved by developing software that interfaces between the AltiCaptor portability layer and STMicroelectronics' STAPI driver suite and will be hosted on the STi5514-Mboard hardware reference platform. The STAPI drivers are compatible across devices in the OMEGA range, ensuring that the reference solution can be easily ported to other devices in STMicroelectronics' product roadmap.
