Ocean Blue Software
releases a new version of its Sunrise DVB software to support multi-core CPUs and multi-tasking. The move comes as processing power built into TVs and PVRs reaches new levels, and will allow manufacturers to take full advantage of the power; offering faster, richer user interfaces.
The enhancement means Sunrise DVB is now capable of working as either the core of the system or as a plug-in module to a more complex, bus driven architecture, where there may be multiple presentation engines and other processes running alongside the DVB Core.
The new generation of Sunrise DVB software is in line with the expectations of next generation products, Ocean Blue has added the ability to link external graphic environments to Sunrise, to generate the User Interface. This means developers can replace the native UI with an interface built in QT, CSS3 or Adobe Flash, generating a richer user experience.
