Bringing content from multiple sources to the big screen and enhancing the experience there through 4K with the help of advanced HEVC compression are the two areas of focus for SoftAtHome at IBC.
The company is showing new ways of consuming video with three alternative options for operators: an HEVC/4K advanced box running UHD TV, small form factor HEVC box and a Cast dongle. The dongle is powered by SoftAtHome’s Software Operating Platform (SOP), which the company says has already been deployed in more than 20 million devices spanning 15 countries globally.
SoftAtHome is also announcing extended partnerships with key players at IBC. “We are excited to have crossed this important milestone of 20 million licenses that demonstrates the trust our clients place in our platform”, said Michel Degland, CEO of SoftAtHome. “Our main focus this year has been to introduce radically new ways of consuming video content for end users, bringing greater freedom and simplicity with UltraHD and Cast Dongle. Delivering the best user experience and ensuring quality of service are, as always, our two major objectives.”
