TV experience company Sixty has signed a strategic partnership with Altibox which will see Sixty apply its expertise and experience to support the development of Altibox’s latest generation STB. The agreement further extends a decade-long working relationship between the two companies.
“We have been working with Altibox for almost a decade and we’ve played a key role in shaping all their designs for TV and multimedia. The new Altibox STB marks an important milestone for both Altibox and Sixty”, said Kjetil Horneland, CEO of Sixty.
The announcement follows the disclosure by Altibox that Huawei will provide a new cloud-based TV infrastructure to support Altibox’s set-top boxes.
“Sixty is unique to our industry in the way they combine experts from different fields of television to be able to meet the ever-evolving demands of our customers,” said Øyvind Lundbakk , Product Director at Altibox. “Working with Sixty on design and user interface implementation is important to us because they have the pool of expertise that we believe is needed to keep up with consumers’ constant quest for innovation and their desire to be engaged with content in a multi-screen environment.”
