Accedo collaborates with Qualcomm to accelerate XR market adoption with end-to-end offering

Accedo and Qualcomm have developed an end-to-end XR offering for pay-TV operators, accelerating adoption of next-generation viewing experiences across sports, media and home entertainment.

Accedo will develop a software stack for high-performance XR hubs built on the Snapdragon Spaces XR Developer Platform. Qualcomm Technologies has designed an XR Hub powered by Snapdragon, which is a reference platform for XR distributed computing to support the capabilities of Accedo’s software stack. These innovations are designed to be a new media hub for the next generation of living rooms, that will enable multi-user experiences by powering the use of AR glasses in the same room thanks to Qualcomm’s split-rendering technology.

The reference platform will also support Accedo’s Xtend solution to enable pay-TV operators, as well as sports and media and entertainment companies, to build engaging and scalable XR streaming applications. Accedo’s long-standing experience developing for Android TV will enable the development of a new XR Launcher, specifically designed for integration with the XR Hub.

Michael Lantz of Accedo commented: “We see an opportunity in the new XR hub for sports, media and entertainment players to enhance the sports viewing and streaming experience. Powered by Accedo’s award-winning Xtend Solution and with our leading experience in designing user experiences for media, we are excited to use our expertise developing high-quality solutions in collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies’ footprint in the XR market.”

Sahil Bansal, senior director, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, added: “In collaboration with us, Accedo is working to bring this game-changing XR solution to market to empower operators to deliver immersive sports, media and home entertainment experiences. We are excited to enable new XR applications built on Snapdragon Spaces, and we hope the XR Hub powered by Snapdragon is set to become the new media hub in the living room.”
