Innovation: Softier pioneered technology such as “Linux native on a digital signal processor (DSP),” which has become a foundation to provide cost effective, high performance H.264 STBs. Softier also pioneered the acceleration of the consumer user interface by running browsers and Flash™ on a DSP-based architecture vs. traditional RISC architecture.
Investment Protection: All Softier WAVE STB products support multiple codecs for the ability to upgrade from original deployments (MPEG-2) to future requirements such as H.264 or VC-1.
