Swiss software developer iWedia has worked with French service provider Bouygues Telecom on its new 4K HDR set-top box.
The Android TV device features IPTV over-Wi-Fi to the gateway, Bluetooth remote control, Google-enabled voice search and Dolby Digital audio. It also includes integrated Chromecast and cloud-based recording with 100 hours of recording time made available to customers.
Herminio de Faria, IPTV STB Director, Bouygues Telecom says, “We have enjoyed a long-standing partnership with iWedia going as far back as 2015 and the launch of our first Android TV set-top boxes. It was an easy decision to work with them again on the next evolution of our STB solution.
The complex project required integrating, testing and validating the Android TV software tailored for Bouygues Telecom with a new chipset from a new hardware supplier.
Hans-Jürgen Desor, CEO, iWedia said, “Working on such a complex project as this requires very close collaboration with the team at Bouygues Telecom. We are humbled that Bouygues Telecom continues to trust iWedia to deliver on its vision to provide state-of-the-art solutions.”
Bouygues Telecom is one of the largest network service providers in France with over 26.2 million fixed and mobile subscribers.
