Intel CE media processor powers Comcast’s Xfinity TV experience


Intel Corporation announced that its Intel CE media
processors are helping power Comcast’s next-generation Xfinity TV experience
which uses a new guide and user interface to make the television more
interactive, personal and social.


The Intel-based set-top box, designed and developed by Pace,  enables
Comcast to deliver services that are easier to navigate and search as well as
interactive applications that are seamlessly integrated into the television
experience. Comcast is using Intel’s processors in
new set-top boxes in its Augusta, Ga. market trial of Xfinity TV.



The new Xfinity TV experience is an outstanding
implementation of next-generation television. It takes advantage of the
breakthrough technologies in our Intel system-on-a-chip products and is
well-positioned to lead the innovation charge as we push the boundaries ever
further,” said Erik Huggers, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Digital
Home Group.



Intel’s system-on-a-chip also offers
a new level of CPU and graphics performance that is capable of running multiple
platform technologies and device drivers.



Our next-generation Xfinity TV is a platform that brings
a much richer, personalized and interactive experience, with the ability to
continually improve and expand features for our customers. Partnering with
Intel accelerates this innovation through the large community of companies and
technologies that support their processors today,” said Sam Schwartz,
president, Comcast Converged Products.
