This LinuxDevices.com “device profile” introduces i3 micro technology's Mood Box, a (Linux-based) stylish 'next-generation set-top box' that is intended to fit the decor of homes, upscale hotels, and commercial settings — delivering IP-based live TV, video-on-demand, pay-per-view, music-on-demand, Internet… browsing, email, and other interactive services and 'infotainment' applications to users' TV sets.
Based on a Linux-based operating system and open multimedia standards, the Mood Box can be used as part of an i3-provided total 'Mood solution' which includes the set-top box along with streaming servers (for IP TV and video-on-demand) plus systems management servers. Alternatively, the device is available as a standalone component for use with various 3rd-party products and services.
