Technicolor has announced the delivery of 100 million set-top boxes, just a week after the company changed its name from Thomson.
The milestone respects the heritage of the French manufacturer that goes back to 1994 and includes deployments for operators including UPC Broadband, BSkyB, DirecTV and HOT.
“This is a major achievement for Technicolor and we are all delighted to reach the delivery of our 100 millionth set-top box,” said Frédéric Rose, chairman and CEO of Technicolor. “The Group has successfully delivered set top boxes to satellite, cable and IPTV service providers right across the world and is poised to support its customers in the future with hybrid solutions for delivering any type of content on demand, designed to enrich the viewer experience.”
The statement comes just a week after a similar announcement by Motorola, which last week said it had shipped its 100 millionth ‘digital entertainment device’.
