Introducing the Internet Media Device Alliance

by | Dec. 30, 2008

From the EE Times, some of the major players in streaming media, including device and receiver makers, radio broadcasters and music service providers, have joined forces to launch an industry forum dubbed the Internet Media Device Alliance to develop and promote a set of open, interoperable standards and device profiles to drive the market for Internet-connected media devices.

Initial member companies and organizations include Frontier Silicon, Audiovox, France Telecom, Reciva, Global Radio, PURE, vTuner, TerraTec, AwoX and the BBC.

The IMDA will hold an inaugural assembly meeting during the CES in Las Vegas on January 9th, and hopes many others will join the effort.
