Royal Philips Electronics and Intel Corp. have collaborated to create a new digital multimedia reference platform called Pronto++ Software & Systems. This platform is expected to enable Philips and its OEMs to create next-generation interactive, digital audio and video devices running on Intel PXA250 processors.

The Pronto++ Software & Systems platform consists of reference hardware, a complete stack of enabling software, and multimedia services geared toward consumer simplicity and ease-of-use. The Intel PXA250 processor, a part of the Intel Personal Internet Client Architecture, is based on Intel XScale technology which enables low-power building blocks for the wireless, handheld, and consumer electronic market segments.

"This multimedia platform is a complete solution that provides major components and entertainment services to enable OEMs to quickly design a new category of multimedia devices," said Peter Green, general manager, Intel Extended Computing Division. "In a single device, consumers will have access to interactive digital content consisting of music, pictures, video, gaming, and other unique infotainment services. These devices will help expand the digital multimedia experience from the PC throughout the digital home."
