VM Labs processor allows interactive features on DVD players

Author: JT Smith

Reported at EE Times: "VM Labs Inc. has begun sampling its
third-generation VLIW-based media processor, designed to bring
high-end interactive features down to commodity DVD players. The
fabless semiconductor company is also opening up its system architecture,
called NUON, in hopes of turning it into "an open platform for the living
room," according to chief executive officer Richard Miller... The company
plans to make available, at www.dev.nuon.tv, software tools composed of NUON libraries, sample
code and documentation based around open-source tools such as the GNU compiler."
