Short Take: Conexant, Liberate to design new set-top box

Conexant Systems and Liberate Technologies said they will develop a blueprint for a next-generation set-top box for telephone companies and for satellite and cable operators. The design, expected to be ready in early 2001, is meant to accelerate the introduction of services to consumers, such as interactive television, Web browsing, e-commerce and digital video recording. The reference design will integrate Conexant's chipsets and other products for set-top boxes with Liberate's TV Platform software.
