TDG Germany has deployed a second set-top box (STB) powered by Zenterio OS as owner Deutsche Telekom Group looks to harmonise STB client software across operations in Germany, Hungary, Greec and Romania.

The scalable software is designed to reduce integration time and lowers costs, allowing the new Entertain TV STBs to support a feature set including live IPTV up to 4K resolution; VoD; YouTube, Netflix, and other third-party apps; advanced bandwidth and resource management; advanced parental control; interactivity with companion devices; and advanced data collection and monitoring capabilities.

"Entertain TV in Germany is the first time Deutsche Telekom Group has ever offered a 4K service, and we're honoured to be collaborating together on this project," said Jörgen Nilsson, CEO of Zenterio.

"Our common software platform was the key to the success of this service launch and two other major service launches for Deutsche Telekom Group recently, in Germany and Croatia."
