4K front and centre16 September 2017
4K resolution is front and centre of everything EKT is showing and talking about at IBC.
The company is launching a new 4K, UHD, HDR, HEVC Linux platform. EKT has ported its solidTV STB middleware, delivering its pre-integrated solution for IP, OTT as well as hybrid STB needs. According to the company, this means that any existing or new customer looking for a future-ready product can opt for a 4K platform to ensure the longevity of their investments.]
EKT also noted that it has managed to create a solution with only a small cost uplift from the existing HD solutions it is shipping today.
Richard Smith, CEO, EKT, said: “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 15,000 DMIPS SoC, EKT said it delivers an operator quality and featured Android STB. Also being demonstrated is an upgraded 4K version of the
Operator TV EKT launched at IBC last year.
