Comigo to demo Android-based STB solution

Multiscreen TV platform provider Comigo is set to demo its next generation Android-based set-top box solution at IBC.

The solution supports HEVC, which Comigo says could save operators up to 40% on content delivery costs, and also offers flexibility through the choice of different modules.

Comigo said that modules include a personalisation engine, social engine, engagement module, social recommendations engine and insights and analytics – which operators can pick and choose based on their needs.

Pay TV operators can also use Comigo’s set-top solution to remotely launch content-related apps and services across different screens and devices.

“Pay-TV operators today are keen on delivering an engaging TV experience on every screen, and are looking for innovative ways to generate additional revenue streams from their TV service. To meet this demand, we are partnering with a variety of system integrators globally, we’ve opened our backend capabilities to solution partners, and we offer our Android-based STB middleware to several STB vendors,” said Comigo CEO, Dov Moran.

Comigo claims that it has “dramatically increased” sales revenue and global market penetration over the last year. During the first half of 2014 it doubled its customer base and sold five times more set-top boxes compared to 2013, the company said.

It is also in the process of expanding into new geographical markets within Asia, the US and Latin America, while extending sales in existing territories in Europe and Central America.
