The BlueTiger Connected Optical Drive Platform offers manufacturers a way to differentiate optical drive-based products via enhanced audio/video processing, simplified connectivity, and the delivery of next-generation premium digital media content. Built upon industry leading hardware, BlueTiger reference solutions are comprised of a ready-for-manufacturing (RFM) hardware platform, a high quality CD/DVD loader, and a customizable software framework that enables manufacturers to significantly improve time-to-market and lower development costs when responding to new market opportunities in media convergence. All BlueTiger CD-modules offer to choose internal or external master clock (selected by a control input) for lowest jitter and audio outputs are available as I2S and SPDIF. The modules are available independently from each other for manufacturing and as spare parts.
