"As a strong supporter of open technology and Web standards, Espial believes RDK is an essential layer for MSOs to deliver a next-generation user experience to consumers. Cable operators will also benefit from dramatic reductions in time and expense required to quickly deploy advanced STBs in their networks, while simultaneously driving their own user experience roadmap and development cycle," said Jaison Dolvane, president and CEO, Espial. "Our solutions enable cable operators to harness the power of RDK in delivering a richer television experience through the integration of an advanced application framework, user interfaces and social media all driven by an IP service delivery platform."
The RDK from Comcast is a pre-integrated software bundle that creates a common framework for powering tru2way, IP, or hybrid STBs and gateway devices, accelerating the development and deployment of next-generation video services. Comcast licenses the RDK to OEMs, software integrators, SOCs, software vendors, and MVPDs to create a community of innovators focused on bringing rich, multiscreen TV home entertainment experiences to consumers faster.
