Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. and TVBLOB Srl have signed a strategic relationship to provide a quick time-to-market solution for a wide range of multimedia appliances based on the new TVBLOB ScatterMedia toolkit and Toshiba TX system RISC microprocessors. Initially, TVBLOB will port its ScatterMedia software platform to the Toshiba TMPR4938-powered AVM49R multimedia reference platform.

The ScatterMedia toolkit provides the foundation to build network- distributed and interactive applications with support for real-time streaming and media management. It includes modules for quick and easy creation of media players, streaming servers, digital video recorders, soft-phones, and video-conferencing appliances, based on typical set-top box or professional rack-mount hardware-embedded platforms.

Meanwhile, the Toshiba AVM49R multimedia reference platform is a complete reference design that combines a 300MHz Toshiba TMPR4938 MIPS-based RISC processor, a Toshiba TC86C001F PCI-to-ATA66/USB companion chip and the Vweb VW2010 MPEG-1/2/4 audio/video CODEC chip, all running under the MontaVista Linux operating system.
