PARIS and HOLLYWOOD, CATechnicolor announced that it will deliver a custom-developed telepresence adapter to Comcast designed to deliver high-definition videoconferencing, or videocalling, through TV sets.

Technicolor’s solution will enable Comcast to deliver an interactive videocalling experience using existing set-top boxes and TV sets as well as wireless LAN networks. The adapter includes an HDMI input and output, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi, RF4CE control, external USB and SD card slot, and an integrated external camera and microphone. Comcast first demonstrated the telepresence offering at The Cable Show 2011 in Chicago in June, and has announced it plans to conduct market trials later this year.

Comcast recently announced a partnership with Skype for an HDTV-based videoconferencing service.

“As we were planning to create an HD videoconferencing service offering for our subscribers, we engaged Technicolor to design and develop the adapter, based on their successful track record delivering custom-built solutions and their ability to develop innovative products in a cost-effective, timely and seamless manner,” says Steve Reynolds, senior vice president of home networking for Comcast.
