Intel Media (INTC -1%), the unit tasked with creating a Web-based TV service, is looking to boost its headcount to 300 over the near-term, and perhaps 400 within 6 months. The division, reported in the past to be "run like a startup in stealth mode," is looking for engineers, as well as an "audience representative" who "must be weird." Separately, Intel has reached a deal with private Hillcrest Labs to integrate Hillcrest's motion control tech in the reference platform for the set-tops that will power its TV service.
