Developed on the next generation UHD platform, EKT has ported its solidTV STB middleware delivering all its pre-integrated solution for IP, OTT as well as Hybrid STB needs. This means that from now on, any existing or new customer looking for a future ready product can opt for a 4K platform to ensure the longevity of their investments.
Richard Smith, EKT’s CEO says “Our goal is always to deliver something better for our customers. We were tempted to launch a 4K range last year, but believed that both the chipsets and the market were not ready for it. Now we have the confidence we can deliver a future proof solution ensuring the best investment for our customers”.
In addition to its Linux platform, EKT is also launching a range of Android operator STB solutions. Built with a 15000 DMIPS SoC, EKT delivers an Operator quality and featured Android STB.
Smith commented: “At EKT we say: We listen to and understand our customers better. We have had many discussions with our customers and partners on the virtues of Android. And with the latest developments like the operator tier certification program, we see that Android is showing its commitments to the operator market. Based on this EKT has created a comprehensive Android platform and offer our customers the best in Android IPTV/OTT and as well as Hybrid.”
On the back of the launch of the Operator TV last year, EKT has now created an upgraded version of its ground breaking platform with a 4K / UHD Operator TV. Available in various sizes, this SmartTV is a perfect addition to the content delivery strategy of any operator wanting to differentiate themselves from the rest with a truly compelling customer offer.
“We say: EKT delivers better value to its customers. The consumers demand to have a 4K TV now and the technologies are available to deliver this to our customers in a cost effective manner. We see it our job to help our customers combat the ongoing pressures in this market and the Operator TV is a great tool in the marketing mix to offer something new and compelling”.
