Interactive TV company Accedo has partnered with NDS to launch a new solution that enables service providers to develop set-top-box apps and widgets.
The solution will enable pay TV operators to launch their own app store, manage application lifecycle, contextualise content and monetise apps through a connected set-top-box. It lets operators author apps with an open Software Developer Kit (SDK), and enables smooth rendering of apps through an HTML browser integrated with NDS’ MediaHighway set-top-box software.
The solution uses Accedo’s management platform, Accedo Application Sphere, which provides a customisable front-end user interface with multiple existing applications, as well as a back-end system.
“We are excited to be working with NDS on this joint solution,” said Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo. “NDS has extensive experience providing end-to-end software solutions for the pay television industry, which enable advanced services. The combination of NDS software and Accedo’s application management experience will be a valuable solution for operators looking to embrace interactive TV.”
