AllVid Alliance Formed – Founding Members Include Sony, Best Buy & SageTV
Now here’s an interesting story pertaining to you CableCARD fans, as the AllVid Alliance includes some interesting members. Still a loooong way to go til this sees the light of day, but it’s a good start having such a diverse membership.
The AllVid Tech Company Alliance was formed to provide a unified voice for the consumer electronic companies to ensure the NCTA doesn’t try to cripple AllVid to the point they did with CableCard. The alliance has seven founding members including Google, Sony Electronics, TiVo, Best Buy, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics, Nagravision and SageTV. The alliance supports the “gateway” approach to providing TV & video service across the network.
