Our Technology


We at Giavaneers have had the opportunity to develop a variety of creative technologies in crafting successful solutions for our clients. Our experience includes embedded communications systems, multimedia (HDTV, DVD, MP3 and e-mail) products, product specific system level testbeds, and a range of distributed applications. We regularly work on Windows, Linux, Macintosh, VxWorks, and MQX platforms. The list below is a sampling of some of our technologies.

Embedded Application Framework for HDTV Convergent Product

An embedded Linux application framework integrating HDTV, DVD, CD, MP3, Internet Radio and other streaming media, Voice and Text-based E-Mail and Internet Browsing in an XML-based Xlet framework delivered through a dynamic, multimedia rich user interface.  Custom hardware and software development provides true HDTV resolution (1920x1080) with alpha-blended graphic overlays.
