Named CubiConnect, it features a state-of-the-art user interface (UI) and advanced functionality including seamless content discovery and cloud video services.
The UI is available in both ultra-HD (4K) and full HD (1080p). Because CubiConnect integrates seamlessly across the full range of network eco-systems, including satellite/terrestrial broadcast networks, hybrid DVB-C/IP, IPTV, and OTT, operators will be able to deliver its benefits to a diverse range of subscribers.
Separately, Cubiware announced the successful integration of its pay-TV middleware with a TiVo compatible demonstration client that has been upgraded to include decoding support for HEVC Ultra HD video.
It also made public that it has entered into an agreement with the South Korean set-top box maker CreNova Multimedia to develop a joint platform for end-user delivery of pay-TV content.
Focused initially on hybrid cable (DVB-C) and IPTV deployments, the first new CreNova boxes resulting from the agreement will be based on the Broadcom 7583 chipset, to be expanded soon to others as per market expectations.
Cubiware will integrate CubiTV middleware for the platform, thereby enabling support for advanced capabilities such as personal video recorder (PVR), video on demand (VOD), catch-up TV, and integrated web browsing.
