FUJITSU MICRO/EUROPE & ENTONE ENTER D-TV ALLIANCE.

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) and Entone Technologies will collaborate on a broad range of networked digital media delivery initiatives including ATM-based digital television broadcasting, adaptive rate video streaming and methods to protect against unauthorised use and piracy.

Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will develop standards-based products for digital video storage, delivery and management. FME will develop a reference design for a low-cost digital television decoder. The reference design will include an integrated ADSL interface based on KeyWave, the company's single chip ADSL solution. Also featured will be FME's single chip MPEG decoder, the MB87L2250, a product from its European Multimedia Development Centre. Entone will port its digital television client software to the FME platform. The client software includes ATM signalling support, software interfaces to its StreamLiner media servers for on-demand control and an electronic program guide. The companies will also co-operate to deploy broadband applications on a global basis.

According to a February 2000 survey by Cahner's Instat more than 23 million households will subscribe to video over ADSL by 2005. Today's alliance will contribute to the widespread deployment of these service platforms, by providing products to deliver digital content in a manner that is easy to use for consumers and helps to ensure the protection of licences and copyrights.

The Fujitsu/Entone solution ensures that digital content is never stored or transmitted in clear form. Digital scrambling is applied to all broadcast and stored content and de-scrambling occurs within the FME MPEG decoder.
