Orange has detailed the launch of its new Livebox at an event in the Carrousel du Louvre, Paris. The STB will be available by summer of 2016 in France.
The Livebox features optimised speed for both ADSL and Fibre. Its extended Wi-Fi ac range “guarantees” a constant network throughout the house, clocking speeds of up to 1 gigabyte per second with a fibre connection. Orange combines an Airbox Confort box with the New Livebox Internet service, enabling Internet access via a mobile network while waiting for the fibre or ADSL connection to be operational.
With a 1 Terabyte (TB) hard disk, the new Livebox Storage enables remote access to any file saved in shared or personal secured spaces. All the power of the network is marshalled to deliver an amazing experience through the new Ultra HD Decoder. Ultra HD means pictures are four times sharper and more defined than an HD picture, to which the new decoder can add the deep, enveloping Dolby Atmos sound. These new quality standards can be tested as soon as the New Livebox is available through a catalogue of content that includes live events, sports and more than 300 titles on demand in Ultra HD.
