Risks and challenges
Putting games on TV is in our blood. One thing we have learned along the way is that it is never simple. We think we've found a great route with EDGE and have been fortunate enough to be able to use a lot of the underlying technology we have already developed to help get this project off the ground.

We've worked with some great partners from leading chip manufacturers to R&D and hardware development houses in Asia to get to this point. We have faced some significant design challenges along the way, not least in terms of packing the technology within such a small form factor but also in terms overheating issues in earlier prototypes which we have now solved through our choice of processor.

There is always a chance of problems in the delivery chain causing delays. If essential components used in the project become unavailable, we might be forced to make changes to the planned product to facilitate suitable replacement components, causing delays. One of our suppliers could go out of business or be unable to scale production volume up quickly enough if demand exceeds our estimates. Customs procedures and certification requirements may change and cause delays. With all unfinished projects, there is always a chance of patent or other legal claims by 3rd parties that need to be addressed and may cause delays or project cancellation.

While these risks exist, we have put contingency plans in place where possible and we are confident we can deliver the project to spec and on time.

Legal Disclaimer: The designs and functionality shown are not necessarily final, they are used for illustrative purposes and may be subject to change. The SBC board used in the prototypes is subject to change depending on economies of scale. The system does not ship with software components or games we didn't either license, develop ourselves or use under a permissible Open Source license. Where we modify or build on Open Source software in order to enable the functionality of our system, we will release all source code once distribution of the final units commences, irrespectively of license type.

ROM(**) usage: If you decide to install the additional Emulator Pack to enable the system to run game backups from older systems, the legality of using such ROMs depends on your countries laws and on additional circumstances such as for example your continued possession of the original copy of the game as well as the original hardware it ran on. The functionality is meant to allow you access to your old gaming favorites, in cases where e.g. technical reasons prevent you from continued use of those - always subject to the laws of your country. We do not condone software piracy.

* An Emulator is a program that tells a computer how to behave like the console or arcade machine did, so that it knows how to interpret the ROMs.

** A ROM is a digital copy of an individual game program that was originally running on Arcade machines, consoles or older home-computers. A ROM can normally only be run on the system it was originally designed for.
