Project Description


I need a thin client computer similar to Roku media player for streaming TV channels over a wireless network. The device will actually retrieve channels from a CableCard tuner plugged into the network but CableLabs might have specific requirements for hardware to access encoded TV channels.

The device needs the ability to be certified by CableLabs as a receiver, include IR input via [url removed, login to view] TRS and wifi.

Please verify hardware requirements from the CableLabs website and consult on the best solution to meet their requirements with your bid.

One idea is a custom input card and custom designed case to reduce engineering expenses.

I have never worked with hardware before but I am expecting three orders.

Alpha - 25-30 units, raw and barebones, no software

Beta - 100-125 units, basic enclosure, no software

Production - 1000 minimum, packaged with box, cables, software, ready for resale with software provided.

Please include a payment schedule and timeline.
