Humax launches range of RDK devices

Set-top and gateway provider Humax has launched a range of RDK devices for pay TV operators. The company has also joined the RDK Video Accelerator programme and announced its first RDK Video Accelerator 4K IP reference set-top box. 

Humax’s RDK Video Accelerator set-top box is pre-integrated with the RDK application framework and the Metrological App Store. RDK Management launched an app framework two years ago to enable operators to build their own app store or choose a RDK pre-integrated app store such as the Metrological App Store.

Humax has also unveiled an RDK-based 4K Soundbox, GPON gateway and DOCSIS 3.1 gateway. All products are expected to be available in the second quarter.

RDK is a Comcast-driven open source software platform initiative that standardises core functions used in broadband, video and IoT-connected devices. It is designed to enable service providers to manage their devices and allows them to customise their apps, UIs and data analytics.

Humax will showcase the portfolio of devices at the upcoming RDK Americas Summit on March 10 in Philadelphia.

“Humax is committed to continuous innovation, and that is especially true when it comes to RDK devices. For many of the leading video and broadband providers around the world, RDK is their software platform of choice, and we’re excited to deliver them this portfolio of new products. From our 4K IP set-top box and 4K Soundbox, to our GPON and DOCSIS gateways, we have RDK-powered solutions to meet the growing market demands,” said Jeff Kim, EVP of worldwide sales of Humax.

“Humax has been a leading contributor to the RDK community for years, and today’s announcement is another powerful case in point. On the video side, their stylish new RDK Video Accelerator IP set-top box will enable service providers to quickly test and launch new video applications for deployment. On the broadband side, Humax’s state-of-the-art RDK gateways for fibre and cable are designed to serve the needs of our community today, and into the future,” said Steve Heeb, President and general manager of RDK.
