Technicolor's R&D division, located at the Rennes site (Ille-et-Villaine), which is specialised in the manufacture of digital decoders, will cut 110 positions out of 283 by the end of 2020. The information comes from the inter-union and the elected members of the Social and Economic Committee (CSE) and has been confirmed by management.  The management explains these cuts in the workforce are due to 'structural changes in the market for the design and supply of digital decoders, with the decline in the use of traditional television and the emergence of new uses for video consumption with streaming and VOD replacing the use of traditional decoders'.
