PeerTV, the TV OTT technology solutions provider, has successfully trialled its next generation set top box using H265 HEVC or High Efficiency Video Coding to deliver TV over the internet. The new technology will mean content can be streamed via its set top box using 50 per cent of the bandwidth previously required for H264 technology. Significant enhancements to transmission quality have also been reported.
Commenting on the successful deployment of the new technology, PeerTV CEO Avi Vermus said, “Our next generation OTT TV over the internet set top box takes us to what we believe to be clear market leading position within the OTT market – we can now offer OTT providers a technology solution using Android apps, quad core technology for power and H265 compression, which delivers far superior picture and sound quality, whilst using around half the bandwidth previously needed. Clearly, this opens up the market considerably and allows us to target countries where OTT TV may not yet have been considered viable, as these areas may not yet have a well-developed fast internet infrastructure.”
