TalkTalk TV. “With Technicolor’s MediaNavi, we are looking at new ways to
provide a consistent approach across multiple devices and to be able to offer
our customers a truly premiere user interface within a touch screen tablet

“We are very pleased to work with a progressive network service provider such
as TalkTalk,” said Frederic Rose, CEO, Technicolor. “With MediaNavi, we’re
committed to helping TalkTalk provide an enhanced user experience to their

more simple and seamless manner via advanced metadata techniques combined with

manner that keeps the detail on the MediaNavi device and the desired show on
the consumer’s big screen TV.
