S&T’S Redkey Technology Wins New Markets

A specialist interactive TV playout systems and MHEG middleware company, Strategy & Technology Client Systems Ltd (S&T Client Systems), has announced that four leading Asia-based receiver manufacturers have licensed its RedKey MHEG-5 receiver engine.
Sichuan Changhong Network Technologies, Homecast, Pixel Magic Systems and Value Platforms have all licensed S&T’s technology.
This announcement follows on from further adoption of the MHEG-5 standard including Hong Kong’s leading broadcaster TVB and MSO Digicable in India.
With New Zealand already up and running, trials in several other countries and several operators in India selecting MHEG-5, it is anticipated that other broadcasters across the region will also select the public standard middleware.
“We have been supplying digital TV receivers – set-top boxes and now iDTVs too – since 1997 and our technology is being used across the world. MHEG-5 has many outstanding advantages and we believe that there will be increasing global requirement for MHEG-5 product. The fact that S&T has opened an office and technical support in Hong Kong was very important in our decision,” explained Huaqiong Yang, Patent Engineer, Sichuan Changhong Network Technologies.
Territory-specific profiles of the MHEG-5 standard, based on the UK Profile 1.06, are being progressively released to support different character sets and receiver requirements.
“Homecast is one of the leading set-top box manufacturers based in Korea. We have received requests from some operators recently to include MHEG-5 and Freeview in NZ recently selected our technology. It also recommended S&T to us,” said Young Kyung Song, Managing Director, Homecast.
Nelson Choi, MD, Pixel Magic Systems, added, “With TVB in Hong Kong selecting MHEG-5 there is a clear market opportunity. It is a proven technology and S&T is a well-known company in this sector with a good reputation.”
