OTT DVB solution from ABOX42

ABOX42, a provider of IPTV & OTT Smart STBs and services, debuts at TV Connect in London at booth #37 its innovative OTT DVB solution for operators. OTT DVB allows the operator for the first time to provide a full TV experience to the end-user’s television set, using the unmanaged Internet.

OTT technologies like HLS were developed mainly for mobile devices like Tablets, without having a complete TV experience in mind. Basic features like Teletext or advanced functions like HbbTV are not yet supported with traditional OTT implementations. ABOX42's OTT DVB solution technically combines for the first time features required for television using OTT protocols and market proven standard head end systems.

Key features of the ABOX42 OTT DVB solution are:

  • Adaptive BitRate Streaming via HLS to achieve the same high quality of service like multicast IPTV.
  • Multiple Audio Tracks with separate payload to reduce bandwidth.
  • Fast channel switching. HD channels can be switched in less than a second, giving the end user a similar or better experience than DVB-S/C.
  • Teletext and Teletext subtitle support. Providing the user with what he is used from traditional TV and while fulfilling the legal requirements for operators in many countries to support Teletext and subtitles.
  • Cardless CAS and DRM are supported to protect Pay TV content. ABOX42 supports Microsoft, Verimatrix and Marlin DRM for “Hollywood-grade” security.
  • HbbTV / RedButton support. As a further innovation, OTT DVB allows to use HbbTV and Red Button application like known from high end DVB solutions.
  • Local and network time shift and PVR support.
  • Fast browser based HTML5 user interface is available to give the operator the freedom in the GUI and the user experience.

In addition to the OTT DVB solution the ABOX42 Smart STBs provide the complete functionality of the ABOX42 Smart SDK like support of 3rd party VOD services and 3rd party Smart TV Apps. ABOX42 already supports a wide selection of the 3rd party middleware solutions to meet even the most demanding operator requirements.
The ABOX42 OTT DVB solution is suited for all operators who do not own a managed network and therefore can not deploy multicast IPTV. For operators with their own network, OTT DVB provides an alternative to traditional IPTV. TV services are easier to deploy with OTT DVB, since it works with the same technologies and head ends like multi screen services.
The ABOX42 OTT DVB works side by side with the ABOX42 3rd generation of IPTV solution to give IPTV operators the possibility to seamlessly integrate OTT TV streams into their multicast channel line up. This helps IPTV operators to add many more channels (e.g. foreign language) without increasing the bandwidth of their multicast backbone. (3/14)
