Acorn is setting up a new multimedia design facility in Bristol to focus on developing software for the Digital TV market.
The launch follows the company?s announcement back in September that it was ditching its PC business in favour of Digital TV technology.
The new facility, which will be fully operational by February next year, will house a team of seven senior design engineers, recently recruited by the firm.
Acorn CEO Stan Boland commented: ?The processing power in or around the TV set is forecast to increase dramatically over the next five years. The combination of our architectural and software capability with our new silicon implementation team will allow us to generate integrated licensable intellectual property to support the consumer electronics market."
