Germany’s 3 Screen Solutions (3SS) has partnered with Technicolor to launch pre-integrated hardware-middleware-front end Android TV offerings for faster service launches in a broad range of markets.
The combined solution includes 3SS’s 3READY custom launcher and fully supports Android P for DVB, IPTV or OTT including on-device as well as cloud-to-cloud Google Assistant deployments.
The solution draws on the companies’ international Android TV based system deployments, including the Com Hem TV Hub, the first-ever hybrid Android TV Operator Tier system, based on Android N.
“Android TV is being chosen as an ideal platform to power next generation TV experiences for an increasing number of subscribers worldwide,” said Mercedes Pastor, president Global CPE Business Unit at Technicolor.
“With our new pre-integrated solution with 3SS, we look forward to helping more operators to fast-track their launches while using trusted, proven technology,” she added.
“Android TV has drawn the attention of service providers everywhere since launching just a few years ago and Android TV Operator Tier in particular has rapidly proven a game changer,” said Kai-Christian Borchers, 3SS Managing Director.
“With the new 3SS-Technicolor platform, aspiring Android TV service providers of all kinds can benefit from all that we have learned since the earliest Android AOSP deployments, and we are excited to offer this enabling joint solution to the marketplace,” he said.
