ABOX42, a provider of IPTV & OTT DVB Smart STBs and services, announces the availability of its new 3rd generation IPTV Smart STB Solution. The new software solution for the ABOX42 M-Series Smart STBs allows operators and system integrators to quickly built modern and advanced IPTV solutions.
The 1st generation IPTV was mainly used in DVB STBs with native DVB GUI and certain IPTV extensions. The 2nd generation IPTV offered embedded middleware solutions with first interactive functions like network PVR, VOD and custom implementation of apps.

“We face more and more operators who want to upgrade the current 1st or 2nd generation IPTV deployments to the next level of functionality and user experience,” said Matthias Greve, CEO of ABOX42 GmbH. “Our 3rd generation IPTV solution provides to operators and system integrators leading tools to develop and deploy their next generation services without changing their complete infrastructure.”
