Frontier Silicon, the world’s leading supplier of digital radio and
connected audio technology solutions, announces that its Venice 6.5
connected audio solution has been chosen to power the new range of
Philips wireless speakers.
Philips SW700M and SW750M speakers
The Philips SW700M and SW750M speakers, pictured, are designed for
Spotify Connect users and offer multi-room with world-class audio
synchronization and user experience. This is all enabled by Venice 6.5’s
high performance dual band Wi-Fi 802.11n and a software stack, optimized
for audio applications.
The latest iteration of Venice 6.5 firmware offers multi-room capability
using a range of audio sources, including Spotify Connect, local network
content, Internet radio, and analogue inputs, with Bluetooth coming
soon. In addition, Venice 6.5 supports Apple AirPlay, USB playback and
broadcast digital radio (DAB+ and FM).
A set of companion mobile apps and APIs to control speaker systems make
Venice 6.5 the perfect turnkey solution for the next generation of
connected audio devices.
The speakers are created by WOOX Innovations, brand licensee of Royal
Philips in sound, home entertainment and related accessories. The
Philips SW700M will retail for €99 and the larger, more powerful SW750M,
for €149 when it launches in key European markets next month.
Kenne Chu, Chief Business Leader at Woox Innovations, said:
“With the Philips Spotify multiroom speakers, the dream of seamless,
high-quality music streaming throughout your home is now within reach.
By incorporating Spotify Connect, listeners won’t be disturbed by
unstable connections when streaming music to their speakers. Incoming
phone calls, loss of signal range, or watching a video won’t spoil the
party: the music just keeps flowing. Frontier’s superior connected audio
technology makes this possible.”
Anthony Sethill, CEO of the Toumaz Group, parent company of Frontier
“We are very excited to be part of this product launch. For a brand like
Philips to rely on our solution for this range, is recognition of our
robust technology and dedication to our customers.”
The Venice 6.5 solution will be demonstrated in Frontier’s exclusive
demo room at IFA 2014.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

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...
