ActiveVideo Networks announced earlier this month that is pursuing a comprehensive strategy to bring CloudTV platform to CE devices. The system involves using cloud computing technology to deliver content to such CE devices as HDTVs and Blu-ray Disc players.
As part of the strategy, the company has brought in CE industry veteran Henry Choy as its new vice president of business development. Choy is a veteran of AMD, DisplaySearch and AnySource Media, among other CE companies.
“With ActiveVideo, CE manufacturers and retailers can simply and cost-effectively increase the value of their products by enabling differentiated content and interactivity and opening up the possibility of new revenue streams," ActiveVideo's president/CEO, Jeff Miller, said as part of the announcement.
