Dune HD and Hibox Systems announced at TV Connect Latin America that the full line of Dune HD TV Series connected set-top boxes, including the world’s smallest Dune HD Connect StickSTB, are fully integrated with the flexible IPTV and OTT platform from Hibox Systems. Together, the combined technologies give operators a powerful yet affordable solution for delivering IPTV and OTT content to homes and hotel rooms globally.
With Dune HD connected set-top boxes and Hibox Systems middleware, the companies introduce a powerful yet highly flexible entertainment solution for operators to deliver streaming content to consumer TVs. The platform is easy to use, flexible so operators can deliver the precise content their subscribers want, customisable with operators’ own branding, and allows easy control and usage monitoring through an intuitive, web-based interface. The Hibox solution is available on all Dune HD set-top boxes, including the award-winning Dune HD Connect StickSTB, Dune HD TV-102 and the Dune HD TV-303D, a high performance, full-featured connected set-top box with 2.5” local hard drive bay for PVR functions, 3D and OpenGL support.
“Both Dune HD and Hibox are highly focused on developing technology that is easy, affordable and flexible for operators, ensuring they fully support the content delivery goals of their subscribers,” said Konstantin Dyshlevoy, CEO of Dune HD. “Building out our set-top boxes with the most advanced middleware is a great benefit to our customers, and one that continuously adds to the value of our devices.”
“The combined Hibox IPTV and OTT platform and innovative set-top boxes from Dune HD are a great match,” says Danny Shaw, International Business Development Manager at Hibox. “The swiftly growing global market has a strong appetite for more compact and affordable set-top box solutions. We see an immediate interest in Dune HD products with our integrated middleware, as both companies are making great projects even better with lower life-cycle costs and future-proofed technology.”
