SAMSUNG LICENSES ACORN RISC OS & TVCENTRIC TECHNOLOGY

By CBR Staff Writer

Acorn Group Plc told us last year that its RISC OS operating system was alive and kicking and rumors of its demise were somewhat overstated (CI No 2,895), and now the Cambridge UK company has signed a deal for Korea’s Samsung Electronics Co to license RISC OS and Acorn’s TVCentric technology. The company reckons hundreds of thousands of Samsung consumer devices running RISC OS will be connected to televisions in homes around the world, enabling them to display high quality images, text and full motion video at a low cost. Acorn’s TVCentric technology enables high quality text and images to be displayed on television-based interlaced displays The Samsung deal also includes system software incorporating graphics libraries, font and graphical user interface technologies.
