Ocean Blue develops hibernation software to reduce power consumption

Ocean Blue Software has developed a "deep hibernation" software system for digital TVs and set-top boxes to reduce standby power consumption.

The software monitors device usage and reduces consumption by switching off functions that are not required.

According to Ocean Blue, the Sunrise Eco-TV software cuts power consumption by an estimated 70%.

"The proliferation of electronic devices in the home is pushing up power consumption, but few householders realise quite how much, this new technology should help save energy, money and help reduce our carbon footprint" commented Ken Helps, CEO of Ocean Blue Software.
