Orange Selects Movea to Revolutionize Home Entertainment with Gesture-Control Set-Top Box

Movea (www.movea.com), the leading provider of data-fusion and motion-processing technologies for consumer electronics, today announced its collaboration with Orange, one of the world’s largest telecommunications operators, on the first large scale commercial deployment of a gesture-control set-top box. The new Orange Livebox Play TV® set-top box will run Movea’s SmartMotion Server, the motion processing engine for digital home entertainment, and will ship with a MEMS motion-sensing remote control to deliver a more fun and intuitive way for people to enjoy rich digital content on the TV.

“With the rapid evolution of SmartTVs and Smart Home systems, we see the demand for more intelligent home entertainment devices and natural user interfaces,” said Jean-Bernard Willem, head of content marketing for Orange France. “Our partnership with Movea allows us to offer an innovative user experience for Orange subscribers that will be instrumental in defining the revolution of home theater entertainment. Livebox Play TV with Movea’s SmartMotion begins to make the Smart Home a reality.”

The integration of Movea’s SmartMotion Server with Orange’s Livebox Play TV® enables effortless point-and-click TV interactions and the ability to easily launch and control games and apps. There are simple gestures for features such as volume control, web browsing, gamepad or joystick control, as well as music, photo, video enjoyment and more.

SmartMotion Server’s contextual awareness features allow 10 simple gestures to be used across a wide range of TV viewing activities, which allow for a more user-friendly experience for people of all ages and interests. For example, Livebox Play customers will be able to adjust volume with a gentle twist of the wrist, make a “check” gesture to select an item and a “wipe up and back” gesture to close an application. In addition, MEMS motion sensors onboard the remote control let Orange subscribers easily point and click to navigate the user interface and play compelling motion-driven games with smooth accurate 3D motion.

“Movea and Orange are leading the charge in responding to consumers’ increasing appetite for a more powerful and intuitive home theater experience,” said Sam Guilaumé, CEO of Movea. “Orange’s breadth of experience in telecommunications and home entertainment, and Movea’s expertise in motion control for SmartTVs are the perfect combination to bring fun and immersive motion-based technology that delivers a more natural way for consumers to interact with their TVs. We are excited to collaborate on the world’s first-ever new generation set-top box.”

Movea’s SmartMotion Server is a platform-agnostic and flexible motion engine that makes it possible for systems integrators, OEMs, service providers and application developers to take advantage of Movea’s state-of-the-art motion processing and data fusion technology.

The new motion-enabled Livebox Play TV® service is designed to enhance user interface navigation for consumers. In addition, high speed fiber-optics offer a faster Internet connection and access interactive entertainment options, such as social media, a large library of Video-On-Demand programs, as well as games and apps for the TV, smartphone and tablet.

Orange’s Livebox Play TV set-top box and remote control are now available for pre-order and will be available for purchase in February 2013.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
