iWedia’s Linux-based Teatro-3.0 Solution Now Deploying on the HD+ Market in a 4K STB

Infrastructure

iWedia, a leading provider of software solutions for TV devices to service operators and consumer electronics manufacturers, today announced that it is deploying its Linux-based Teatro-3.0 solution for IP-connected STB on the German HD+ retail market in a 4K Set-Top Box (STB) designed and manufactured by SmarDTV.

The announcement was made at TV Connect 2017, which is being held in London from Tuesday, March 28th through to Thursday, March 30th. iWedia exhibits at the show (ExCeL, stand B54) where it demonstrates the solution.

Teatro-3.0, a software solution for IP-connected STB, is based on Linux with a User Interface built in HTML5 which uses specific JavaScript APIs allowing access to digital TV features.

In the HD+ context, the solution has been ported on a dual-tuner UHD DVB-S/S2 STB from SmarDTV based on the Broadcom BCM7251 SoC. The software has been customized to fulfill the HD+ specifications and integrated with NAGRA GUARD Conditional Access System. Its architecture has received NAGRA NASC 3.0 Tier #4 certification.

The solution features comprehensive navigation tools (service list, zapping banner, flat and grid TV guides) as well as Personal Video Recorder and Time Shift (over a USB storage device). A picture browser and player is provided. Fast zapping is made possible thanks to the underlying full band capture and all digital tuning technologies: when the user changes channel, the transition is almost not noticeable. HbbTV apps are supported.

“With its software architecture recognized highly secure by third party experts, Teatro-3.0 is ideally suited for connected Pay TV STB running Linux,” said Sunghoon Kim, VP Sales at iWedia. “Moreover, it supports HTML5 for both the resident app and remote web services which allows for visually catchy UI,” he added. “We are very proud that German viewers may now enjoy this solution and we are preparing further deployments”.
