Swiss telecommunications company Salt will expand its IPTV offer with Ultra HD/4K content using Zattoo’s technical platform.
The launch is planned for October 2018, with HEVC/H.265 used as the video codec.
For its IPTV platform launched in March 2018, Salt uses Zattoo’s white label solution for network operators in conjunction with the Apple TV 4K box issued to customers and used with operator login for the first time outside the US.
Zattoo operates the entire TV product for Salt as an end-to-end solution, including platform operation, management of the TV application on the Apple TV 4K box, and ongoing development of the platform and all front-end applications.
“We are very pleased to announce that we are introducing 4K/UHD, starting with Salt as the first B2B customer and that we will jointly continue pursuing this new chapter of television,” said Gernot Jaeger, Chief Officer B2B TV Solutions at Zattoo. “We will continue to develop and implement further product innovations as Salt’s partner.”
At its booth G.04 in hall 14 at IBC 2018 in Amsterdam, Zattoo will demonstrate live the 4K/UHD upgrade of its white label solution for network operators.
