It is CES time for Creative (and ZiiLabs). ZiiLabs have planned up a showcase with ARM demonstrating their new SiVO Digital Home Platform for OEMs and ODMs.
The Zii SiVO is a Blu-ray quality digital media hub that sports the ZMS 08 SoC boasting 1080p HDTV playback and 3D graphics.
"The SiVO platform enables OEMs and ODMs to quickly and efficiently bring easy-to-use products to market that enable users to enjoy and share their multi-format media content in stunning 1080p high-definition at Blu-ray quality with bit-rates of up to 40MBPS. SiVO is a proven media-rich platform that offers our partners a complete market-ready solution with the built-in flexibility for customisation." Hock Leow, President of ZiiLABS.
Creative(ZiiLabs) plan to focus this yet again as a platform, rather than any product. The SiVO is far from a consumer product but ZiiLabs have done most of the effort in packaging their Stem cell computing SoC for the shenzhen market.
