   Technicolor unveils Qeo, a revolutionary software bridging ecosystems to
             interconnect devices and applications of all brands

Consumer device manufacturers, developers and service providers can now use a
       common "language" to offer a truly interoperable Connected Life

Paris (France), Las Vegas (NV), January 7, 2013 - Technicolor (Euronext Paris:
TCH), a worldwide  technology leader  in the media  and entertainment  sector, 
today announced  the release  of Qeo,  a software  framework that  allows  for 
seamless interoperability between devices and  applications of all brands  and 
ecosystems.

Today, users want  to enjoy their  favorite applications and  services on  all 
devices, but the proliferation of  disparate ecosystems creates a complex  and 
fragmented experience. Qeo  software modules  address this  problem by  making 
devices, applications and over-the-top cloud solutions speak to one another to
deliver simpler  and  richer  smart  home,  entertainment,  communication  and 
personal media services.  The result  is a truly  Connected Life  - a  simple, 
user-friendly experience  that  allows  consumers to  effectively  manage  and 
utilize the full potential of their devices and services.

Michel Rahier,  President  of  Technicolor's Connected  Home  Division,  said: 
"During the  last years,  we've  built a  solid  understanding of  the  issues 
created  by  heterogeneous  and  closed  ecosystems  that  fragment  the  user 
experience. This  is why  we have  developed Qeo:  a technology  that  enables 
devices to speak  the same language,  be interconnected with  each other,  and 
create totally  new use  cases for  the Connected  Life and  the 'Internet  of 
things'. We are excited to have  received strong support from major  operators 
and industry  leaders for  this  initiative that  we  commit to  keep  pushing 
forward as the new standard for Connected Life".

Qeo  benefits  both  end  users  and  developers,  while  answering   consumer 
electronics manufacturers and service providers' needs:

  oFor end users:

Want  to   remotely  manage   heterogeneous  alarm,   automation,  and   video 
surveillance systems via  one comprehensive interface?  Need your doorbell  to 
send a notification to your TV or  mobile screen when someone is at the  door? 
Want to switch a video call a friend  started on your main TV to your  tablet? 
Qeo makes such use cases easy to develop and deploy, and enables the potential
of many more of these innovative digital life scenarios.

  oFor developers:

With Qeo, creating cross-devices and  cross-OS applications has never been  so 
easy  and  straightforward.  Developers  can  build  distributed  applications 
without having to care about the diversity of languages, OS, or  environments. 
It's all about giving free rein to developers' imaginations.

  oFor services providers: 

Qeo comes with tools  to monitor and manage  all Qeo-enabled devices,  keeping 
operational costs under control. It provides views, from global home  networks 
down to individual customers, devices  or applications, enabling all sorts  of 
personalization.

  oFor consumer electronics manufacturers

Qeo allows more  than just  content sharing.  With Qeo,  devices can  exchange 
usage data,  information,  status. in  a  simple  way to  provide  better  and 
seamless usage  scenarios  for  their  users.  Devices  are  also  immediately 
recognized within the home network and configured with easy set up.

  Qeo capabilities will be demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show on
               Technicolor's booth (Central Hall, booth #8531).
