SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Trident Microsystems, Inc.

"As the world's leading satellite and cable operators prepare for the next wave of  high performance, multimedia–rich applications, it's important that we are able to offer an integrated STB solution that incorporates the latest video coding technology," said Mark Samuel, senior vice president and general manager of Trident's Set-top Box Business Unit.  "The TSC100 family is built around the same open platform that has become a cornerstone of Trident's STB solutions, delivering support for leading web browsing capabilities, online services and popular Android applications."
