The Perception platform delivers a complete, global, OTT multiscreen TV service integrating the four key components of TV, live TV; catch-up TV; video-on-demand and cloud-based PVR into one intuitive user-interface.

ABOX42’s customers will benefit from a smart, latest technology set-top-box combined with Perception’s capability to provide a seamless multiscreen viewing experience. This will allow customers to begin watching TV at home on a traditional TV set and pick up exactly where they left off on a mobile device on the way to work. The ABOX42 set-top-box solution is already delivering a complete Multiscreen TV solution with partners in the German speaking territory.

Our IPTV multiscreen Perception platform can ease the transition, offering an innovative and familiar end-to-end solution quickly and cost effectively.
