New SceneGate set-top boxes are being showcased in Hall 14, as manufacturer Albis Elcon demonstrates how the next-generation kit can be used to launch new TV services to subscribers.
The newest SceneGate Flex STB model is based on an ARM CPU and GPU architecture that supports broadcast, broadband and over-the-top services, combined with the latest STB middleware and broadband software solutions.
ARM’s ‘system on a chip’ (SoC) is designed to help service providers deliver 3D graphics in order to enhance the user experience. The SoC features HEVC decoding, enabling service providers to deliver HD-quality content at low bitrates.
Overall, the SceneGate STB is positioned as an affordable and low-maintenance carrier-grade STB solution that enables operators to introduce new revenue-generating offerings within a very short time to market – or around 14 days.
The turnkey solution offers a ‘pay-as-you-grow’ approach to scalability in order to reduce capex for service providers
