Albis Elcon to demo new SceneGate Flex STB

Albis Elcon will provide several live demonstrations of its next-generation SceneGate STB at IBC 2015, showing attendees how they can use the STB solution in various applications. 

The newest SceneGate Flex STB model is based on an ARM CPU and GPU architecture that supports broadcast, broadband, and OTT services, combined with the latest STB middleware and broadband software solutions.

Through the SoC’s ARM Mali GPU, service providers can deliver 3D graphics, enhancing the user experience. The SoC features HEVC decoding, enabling service providers to deliver HD-quality content at the lowest possible bitrates, according to Albis Elcon.

Elcon will showcase its SceneGate STB as a turnkey solution that is pre-integrated with third-party middleware, conditional access, and backend systems, enabling service providers to introduce new revenue-generating offerings with a short time to market (i.e., approximately 14 days).

During the demo Albis Elcon will also highlight a variety of new features for the SceneGate STB, such as internal WiFi, USB 3.0, and HDMI 1.4, to enable a more connected home entertainment experience for end users.

Also on display at IBC2015 will be Albis Elcon’s globally deployed SceneGate 8073 and SceneGate 8083 STBs. The SceneGate 8083 is for service providers that want to deploy new revenue-generating services such as multiscreen live TV, VOD, and catch-up TV (for up to seven days). Featuring a simple UI, the SceneGate 8083 can run on an exclusively developed global CDN.

The platform is based on an open software architecture that can be easily integrated with today’s popular OTT services. DLNA-based media sharing is available, enabling in-home streaming and multiroom environments.

The SceneGate 8073 is suited more toward operators looking for an entry-level OTT and IPTV STB capable of delivering crystal-clear 1080p HD resolution. The SceneGate 8073 features a contemporary, extremely small footprint — 85 mm wide x 85 mm deep x 35 mm high — and advanced functionalities, such as DLNA-based in-home media streaming and sharing, according to the company.
