Orca to Demonstrate Multi-Standard TV Reception for Connected Home Devices at NAB 2014

POWAY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- Orca Systems, Inc. (www.orcasystems.com), a fabless semiconductor company based in Poway, Calif., will be demonstrating its silicon (ORC5620) and software solution for receiving live digital TV on connected home devices at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas, NV, April 7 - 10, meeting room SU12525MR (Upper South Hall). The solution enables consumers to watch high definition TV on their large screen, high resolution tablets anywhere in the world without touching their data plans.

ORC5620 is a single-chip, CMOS-based, hybrid TV tuner with a built-in analog demodulator and software configurable digital TV demodulator that can receive analog and digital signals from either terrestrial or cable networks, worldwide. The chip supports a broad range of analog/digital standards including NTSC/PAL/SECAM, ATSC/QAM, DVB-T/C, DTMB and ISDB-T that can be programmed on-demand in the field, thereby enabling OEMs to have a single global hardware platform. The chip can be integrated within tablets to receive TV programs or can be integrated in a gateway/accessory that receives programs from terrestrial/cable networks and beams these programs via Wi-Fi to all connected devices in the home.

According to Kevin Krewell, principal analyst for Tirias Research, adoption of HDTV reception in tablets is growing due to the increased screen resolution and size. It is further expected to increase as ATSC adopts the ATSC2.0 standard and broadcasters bring interactive content to the living room.

"Orca's new single chip tuner and multi-region demodulator in a package should further accelerate TV adoption in tablets by providing low power dissipation, multi-region support and superior reception performance," said Krewell.

A complete set of documentation and design materials is available now. CE Manufacturers, OEMs/ODMs and Application Developers interested in booking a meeting should contact [email protected].

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward. He also shared the story of how Skytap used Docker to get out of the business of managing infrastructure, and into the business of delivering innovation and business value. Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
