WATCH VIDEO. The Danish Triax group has announced it will sell the hybrid VideoWeb satellite receiver in Austria under its own brand. The Triax Hybrid 600S receiver incorporates a satellite tuner, a CI slot and access to the VideoWeb portal.
The German, Karlsruhe-based firm VideoWeb has so far sold its hybrid receivers only on the German market. The company also offers a dedicated VideoWeb portal for easy access to various video websites, including VOD from pubic and private broadcasters. The box supports HbbTV and Red Button applications and video on demand via Instant Start technology.
With the entry in the Austrian market, VideoWeb is also introducing a special Austrian window on the portal pointing viewers to the various Austrian sites and services. The number of sites will grow, according to the company.
The VideoWeb 600S model has been modified for the Austrian market, including the dedicated portal as well as a built-in CI slot, which makes it compatible with the Austrian ORF DTH service and possibly the new AustriaSat DTH bouquet, which works with the same Irdeto Cryptoworks smart card.
