Technicolor and Qualcomm Technologies have jointly produced a new set-top box, known as SVELTE, standing for stimulating video experience over LTE. The STB features LTE technology, terrestrial broadcast and Android OS.
The new SVELTE portable media centre will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor to provide new user experiences on television sets, including seamless connectivity, rich TV viewing experiences and console-quality gaming.
"Materialising LTE as a service and delivering true 3play over the cellular network, the SVELTE portable media centre will enhance experiences in the living room, redefining the 'smart TV' concept by enabling a hub for entertainment with optimal platform performance and compelling ways to watch, play and interact," Technicolor says.
SVELTE's LTE module allows for unicast content to complement broadcast content.
