ActiveVideo and Videon Central partnership

ActiveVideo Networks, a specialist in cloud-based interactive television solutions, and Videon Central, provider of digital video solutions and Blu-ray Disc middleware, have announced a joint initiative that is intended to dramatically speed adoption of the next generation of CE video devices.

The two companies will work together to leverage the combined strengths of Videon Central (Videon) core middleware technologies and ActiveVideo processing in the network "cloud" to significantly expand the reach and availability of rich, Web-based user experiences that are redefining interactive television (iTV 2.0). ActiveVideo anticipates that a joint solution would be available on Web-connected televisions, Blu-ray and DVD players, and other devices in millions of homes by year end, 2010.
