Macrovision Showcases Technology for the Evolution of the Digital Home at CES 2009

Thursday, January 8th, 2009 

LAS VEGAS — This week during the International Consumer Electronics Show 2009 at an invitation-only exhibit at Caesars Palace, Macrovision Solutions Corporation (NASDAQ:MVSN) will showcase its portfolio of technology solutions for consumer electronics manufacturers including a new next-generation on-screen program guide and the capability to deliver digital content to Internet-connected televisions through Macrovision’s interactive program guide (IPG).

The new guide, being developed under the project name “Neon”, provides a framework for CE manufacturers to build next-generation devices that can find and play broadcast and premium content, such as television shows, Internet-delivered media and music as well as access and manage content from consumers’ personal media libraries – all on one screen.

In addition, Macrovision has announced that it is working with CBS to demonstrate the integration of select CBS Internet content including episodes from its top-rated drama, CSI, which can be accessed directly from Macrovision’s CE IPG on an Internet-connected television.

Earlier this week, Macrovision also announced two recent customer wins:

  • SANYO Manufacturing Corporation will deploy Macrovision’s Guide Daily in its digital TV product line. The Guide Daily is a version of Macrovision’s full-scale IPG, designed to help consumers navigate, sort, select, and schedule television programming.
  • Onkyo’s next-generation IP audio video receiver (AVR) will use the Macrovision Connected Platform to incorporate the capability to find, acquire, manage and play back personal and premium digital audio media content from a variety of devices and locations in the house.

Based on a continuing relationship with Sony, Macrovision will also exhibit a newly released Sony Bravia® TV developed with My TV Guide, an interactive program guide with personalization features and recommendations. My TV Guide provides viewers with a media rich, enjoyable experience for discovering TV programs that will ultimately change the way that they view their TVs.
