Deutsche Telekom taps Zenterio for 4K UHD hybrid box launch

Deutsche Telekom has tapped technology provider Zenterio to provide software for its just-launched Entertain TV Sat high-end 4K hybrid set-top.

The IPTV, OTT and satellite set-top includes new client and cloud-based features and services including OTT services such as YouTube and Netflix.

Telekom is using Zenterio’s platform to support its strategy of harmonising client software across its European platforms, including Germany.

With the box, TV channels are broadcast via satellite and are also available over the IPTV network. The STB decides which reception method is best for the desired channel based on reception conditions and customer preference.

“Innovation is ongoing at Deutsche Telekom, and we are proud to be a part of this ambitious project to harmonize client software across all countries where DT has television services,” said Jörgen Nilsson, CEO of Zenterio. “4K service launches are just starting to penetrate the German market, and with the introduction of this new 4K hybrid IP-satellite STB powered by Zenterio OS, DT can meet the growing consumer demand for higher quality, richer featured television services, and drive new revenue streams.”
