Paris (3/15/12) -- Httv, an end-to-end ITV solutions provider, today

A leading provider of HbbTV (Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV), httv helped
develop the fast-growing European standard and now brings its expertise to
Sigma Designs through integration of this standard on the SMP8670 chipset.

Sigma Designs' Global Sales Director, Sylvain Riviere said, "httvBOX is not
just a HbbTV stack but a complete and fully integrated solution hybrid STB
compliant with the HbbTV standard. It will give Sigma Designs' STB
manufacturers, broadcasters and retailers addressing the European market a

position as a leading set-top box firmware provider," stated Philippe
Tommasi, director of EMEA sales, "Sigma's unique positioning on home
connected devices, IP and video brings a unique advantage to httv's
deployment plans."
