ABOX42: New TV user interface12 September 2014
German set-top box manufacturer ABOX42 has released a new OPX TV user interface for its third generation line of hybrid DVB receivers, which combine DVB reception with full IPTV as well as OTT capabilities.
Available for deployment from its IBC launch date, the new OPX TV client is supported on all ABOX42 smart STB platforms. Based on HTML5, it offers operators an easy-to-deploy solution with a user experience which integrates all required third generation functionalities.
Key features of the OPX TV Client include unified channel lists for DVB and IP channels, multi-language EPG with extended content as well as forward and backwards EPG for catch-up and restart TV.
The client also supports the integration of third party TV apps like VoD portals, as well as HbbTV and red-button services, alongside operator branded and skinned user interfaces.
OPX TV is multi language and supports multi character sets. It can be used worldwide also for non-Latin based languages like Arabic, Chinese, Thai, Hebrew, Vietnamese and Russian.
The modular design of the user interface is made for being integrated seamlessly into many different head ends like OTT, IPTV and DVB-networks with either local or network PVR and time shift.
The client can be integrated into the operator’s backend and middleware infrastructures to support customer subscriber management systems.
