Apr 6, 2007 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

SysMaster used embedded Linux to build a set-top box with a dizzying array of audio, video, networking, communications, and data capabilities. The Tornado M10 Digital Media Center runs Linux 2.6.19, and targets phone and IP network operators wishing to offer a wide range of services.

The M10's many capabilities include LAN-based H.26e videoconferencing without any gateway, MPEG-4 video-on-demand, Internet radio playback, support for standard FXO phone lines as well as Ethernet-based VoIP calling, and much more.
