Intel may not have attained the same dominance in TVs as it has in personal computers, but the company remains convinced that interactive, networked, computing-intensive tasks will win the company a foothold in the world of video.The company touted various elements of its plan Thursday at its Intel Developer Forum here, including a new Atom CE4100 processor for TVs, technology to automatically extract a highlight reel from a soccer match, companies moving PC games to TVs, and big-screen 3D video that Chief Technology Officer Justin Rattner believes ultimately will arrive in people’s homes.
