Nex, Amlogic & SEI collaborate on Motion Entertainment Set-Top-Box for the Next-Generation Living Room Experience
Nex, Amlogic and SEI cooperate to pre-launch the Motion Entertainment Set-Top-Box. It integrates Nex Motion content, 4K, HiFi 5 DSP, Dolby ATMOS, DTS, HDR10/10+, Android TV OS, Google Assistant, and a camera with 13MP and 110° ultra-wide-angle to provide users with immersive motion entertainment experiences on TVs and turn the living room into a Family Entertainment Hub.
Nex has developed a breakthrough motion engine used in the Motion Entertainment Set-Top-Box. It’s the first motion framework integrated with the Unity game development platform for real-time motion capture. No special trackers, suits, or sensors are required. The Nex motion engine was first developed for the professional sports world and has now been tuned for interactive consumer experiences including sports, fitness, gaming, and entertainment.
SEI Robotics provided hardware development and integration by equipping with Amlogic A311D2 chipset which includes 64-bit octo-core ARM® Cortex™ -A73 + A53 CPU, ARM® Mali™-G52 MP8 (8EE) GPU processor, the video engine (AVE-10) with dedicated hardware decoders up to 8K@24fps and encoders up to 4K@50fps, supports Dolby Vision, Dolby Atoms, HDR10/10+, HLG, HLG and Prime HDR to deliver end users with a premium audio-visual experience.
“It is our big pleasure to partner with Nex and Amlogic for developing and promoting the state-of-the-art Motion Entertainment Set-Top-Box, which has become a family entertainment system and not just a gaming console. The entire family will be able to enjoy hours of fun with a powerful Set-Top-Box and a riveting selection of motion games and experiences, said Jeff Yin, CEO at SEI Robotics. “We will showcase the latest device capabilities at the IBC show, and I’m sure it will be lots of fun to experience the full catalog of motion games and content.”
“Nex is working with key OEMs and Operators to develop a next-generation living room experience, providing even more immersive motion entertainment experiences on the latest TVs and set-top-boxes. Nex has developed the Motion Entertainment Set-Top-Box in partnership with SEI Robotics, to deliver motion-enabled solutions for consumers that are turnkey and instantly accessible from their preferred TV provider”. said David Lee, CEO at Nex.
To demonstrate the full power of the platform for the entertainment industry, Nex will be at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam Sept. 9-12 at the SEI Robotics’ booth (Booth Hall 5.F64). At IBC, Nex will also be demonstrating a full suite of motion games and experiences as well as what’s possible for entertainment content developers with the Nex Motion Developer Kit (MDK).
