Innovative Image Technologies
Technicolor is applying the technology of the future today through 4K content streaming or HD to 4K upscaling, standardizing encoding and application of innovative technologies in Wide Color Gamut expansion, HDR Inverse Tone Mapping and Frame Rate Conversion that will speed the deployment of high-quality UHD experiences to the consumer.

Whether the content is authored, post-produced or optimized for upscaling on TV, the mission is to provide consumers with the highest quality 4K image.
For its new service Virdata, Technicolor has formed a relationship with IBM to provide device and application data analysis. Virdataís device and application monitoring and management service features a real-time and historical big data analytics stack. Initial industries targeted by Virdata are consumer electronics, automotive, utilities, health, industrial automation and retail.
Both companies will demonstrate several implementations of its capabilities including: geo location and real time and historical data for a tablet; utilizing On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) to analyze performance data in a connected car as well as fleet management; and tracking patient data with a heartbeat monitor.
Automotive connectivity platform
Qeo, Technicolorí s software which enables devices and their content to interact with one another, has been selected by PSA Peugeot CitroŽn to leverage this communications framework to deliver connected car services.
