NEWS: The "ePilot 7000" Launches
— Coollogic Inc. Launches e-Pilot 7000 Series -- A Cost Effective, Easy-to-Use Internet Access Device With Advanced Linux OS —
April 3, 2000
* Coollogic Inc., today announced the launch of its e-Pilot(TM) 7000 Series -- a cost-effective, easy-to-use Internet access appliances.
The e-Pilot 7000 series incorporates an advanced embedded Linux operating system that has solved the challenge of a reduced kernel size to fit small, memory-lean devices like set-top boxes.
The new set-top box, part of the e-Pilot 7000 Series, will be sold to Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Vertical Market Integrators (VMIs). It will be bundled with Coollogic's Internet Ready solution and Coollinux, the company's embedded Linux OS software.
Coollinux is a Linux operating system that has solved the past technical challenges of reducing the kernel size to meet the memory footprint and functionality requirements of embedded systems that, in the past, couldn't be applied to most applications because of memory and cost constraints. Coollinux can go down to less than 355 kilobytes, which fits small, memory-lean devices like set-top boxes.
"The e-Pilot is designed to be extremely flexible to the needs of ISPs and VMIs," said Edward Ghafari, vice president of marketing. "Coupled with the wireless keyboard, television or SVGA monitor, nationally provided Internet connectivity and powered by our embedded Coollinux(TM) operating system, the e-Pilot(TM) can eliminate the fear factor among consumers while providing superior performance."
The e-Pilot(TM) is cable-modem and DSL ready, and is compatible with a wide range of popular applications and services. These product features will help to ensure quick adoption and flexible solution among ISPs and VMIs, said Ghafari. Coollogic, which works in a business-to-business model, has positioned the e-Pilot as a powerful but economical Internet access device for the post-PC era.
The e-Pilot(TM) includes: a wireless keyboard and mouse (English or Spanish), TV output with Svideo and Composite (NTSC and PAL), SVGA, Printer support via USB, and Audio support.
