SmartDTV Global and Synamedia announce collaboration on IP dongles

French pay TV solutions provider SmarDTV Global has announced a partnership with Synamedia on secure STB IP dongles integrated with its Infinite platform. 

The company says that the collaboration will “make it easy for operators with large installed base of STBs to add multi-screen services”.

New STB IP dongles will give pay-TV operators a low-cost way to quickly launch OTT and UHD services as they respond to changing TV viewing habits.

The SmarDTV Global IP-dongles, based on a new chipset, are pre-integrated with Infinite, Synamedia’s cloud-based, end-to-end video software platform. 

The SmarDTV devices use the STB’s secure broadcast channel to access live broadcast services and use the subscriber’s Wi-Fi network to access OTT and connected services. SmarDTV device becomes the main interface for the user experience.

Guillaume Reillon, VP Marketing at SmarDTV Global said: “Synamedia’s large pay-TV customer base and innovative Infinite platform make them the perfect collaboration partner for these solutions. 

“The result will be a new way for pay-TV operators to enhance their services and keep subscribers loyal in a competitive market.”

Synamedia and SmarDTV are at IBC at Hall 14 C41 and Hall 5, B53 respectively.
