He noted "the market of operating the software for the set-top boxes and TVs is extremely fragmented."

Zenterio, launched in 2002, said former CTO Mats Lindoff has been named chief technical officer. Based in Stockholm, its customers include , global systems integrators, TV and set-top box manufacturers and chip makers.
