South Korea's Kaon joins RDK Video Accelerator programme

Wednesday 11 September 2019 | 12:50 CET | News

South Korea-based KaonMedia became the newest member of the RDK Video Accelerator programme with the introduction of Kaon’s new RDK Video Accelerator set-top box in advance of the IBC 2019 Conference. Kaon’s RDK Video Accelerator is a set-top box that comes pre-integrated with the RDK application framework and the Metrological App Store. It's designed to enable service providers to rapidly develop, test, and launch new video applications while maintaining full control over consumer-facing applications, user experience, and set-top box data.

RDK is an open source software platform for the connected home that standardises core functions used in broadband, video, and IoT connected devices. It enables service providers to manage their devices; control their business models; and customise their apps, UIs and data analytics to improve the customer experience and drive business results. For video, RDK provides a common method to manage video tuning; conditional access; DRM; stream management; diagnostics; and more.

Kaon’s RDK Video Accelerator is a UHD IP-set top, with built-in Wi-Fi, running on Broadcom’s advanced BCM72604B0 chipset with small memory configuration (128MB Flash + 1GB DDR) and a compact size of 13.5 cm (W) x 13.5 cm (D) x 2.5 cm (H). Based on specific requirements from service providers, Kaon also noted that it plans to offer the RDK Video Accelerator on a choice of chipset platforms running RDK software.

Kaon’s RDK Video Accelerator will be on display in Kaon Stand at the upcoming IBC Conference in Amsterdam from 13-17 September.
