Inview to supply Altech with technology for low cost connected boxes

Connected TV specialist Inview has teamed up with South African TV technology provider Altech Multimedia to develop low-cost broadcast and connected TV solutions for Africa, the Middle East and emerging markets.

Altech Multimedia will port Inview’s Liberator platform onto its set-top boxes, from broadcast entry level devices to connected hybrid DVRs, to create joint solutions both for emerging markets and more established digital TV markets.
The Liberator platform and cloud service is designed to deliver content over broadcast and broadband channels with a small software footprint, enabling it to work on basic set-top boxes.

Keith Wiggins, commercial director of Inview Solutions said: “Inview’s Liberator platform brings together all the key elements required for the delivery of a true hybrid broadcast-connected experience.   The user interface delivers content seamlessly and the platform is supported by ongoing service, development and back office integration to make it suitable for integration with operator’s existing infrastructure. Altech Multimedia is an innovative company with a strong foothold in Africa and we feel that this partnership provides a strong offering for this market.”
