Swiss telco Swisscom is deploying a new Android IPTV set-top box that is being operated by iWedia’s Teatro 3.5 software solution.
The Swisscom TV 2.0 Android IPTV set-top box gives access to 250-plus TV channels, of which 80-plus are in HD. It also offers more than 6,400 videos on-demand in German, French, and Italian, more than 5,000 live sport events each year and seven-day catch-up services.
The Teatro-3.5 software solution for Android STB is designed to extend Android to integrate all the multicast and connectivity components needed to support managed IPTV and OTT services with advanced Java User Interfaces.
In the Swisscom deployment, Teatro-3.5 is also integrated with the Verimatrix VCAS for IPTV Conditional Access System, Verimatrix VCAS for Internet TV and Microsoft PlayReady Digital Right Management systems, to secure the delivery of premium content live and on demand.
“We are delighted that Swisscom has chosen our software solution to operate its TV 2.0 Android box and manage its first screen offering. With this deployment, Swisscom becomes one of the first digital TV operators worldwide to leverage Android openness and flexibility,” said iWedia CTO Nikola Teslić.
Switzerland-headquartered iWedia provides integrated software solutions for television devices and has development labs in Novi Sad, Serbia, and sales and support offices in China, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, and Korea.
iWedia will exhibit at ANGA COM on stand 10.2/ A30.
