“Partnering with Skyviia is an important step as it allows end customers easy access to the Ocean Blue software CI Plus solution, thus reducing time and cost to market,” says Ocean Blue’s Engineering Director, Pete Boyt.
Skyviia’s Director of Business Development, David S. Pan comments, “Skyviia is confident that Ocean Blue’s CI Plus technology combined with Skyviia’s powerful Cortex A9 Duo-Core SV8870 SoC platform, will enable Tier-1 ODMs and OEMs to bring high-quality solutions such as HbbTV Set Top Box to market, as well as supporting innovative Pay TV operators’ drive for subscriber growth and subscriber retention through Skyviia’s core competencies in enabling hybrid IP-DTV digital home applications. “
Ocean Blue Software produced the world's first CI Plus application, launched at ANGA Cable show 2008, paving the way for highly interactive subscriber content on iDTVs. They have continued their support for CI+ and is part of the technical work group now implementing the new features for the DVB led V1.4 specification.
