Broadpeak, Geniatech optimise Android STBs

April 9, 2015

Broadpeak, a provider of content delivery network (CDN) technologies and live and VoD servers for cable, IPTV, OTT, and hybrid TV operators, has announced that its nanoCDN technology has been integrated with the ATV1800 Quad Core Android TV box from Geniatech, providing cable and telecom operators with a cost-effective solution for delivering live OTT video content to millions of Android STBs using only a few megabits per second of the operator’s network.

“The Geniatech Android-based STB is designed to help pay-TV operators deliver an amazing user experience that includes media-rich Web and video content,” said Fang, CEO at Geniatech. “Yet, given the unpredictable nature of live OTT video consumption, we saw the value in implementing Broadpeak’s nanoCDN agent in our devices. The result is a guaranteed high quality of service for our customers at all times and the possibility for operators to deliver live OTT content to virtually any number of subscribers with our STB using the same amount of bandwidth.”
