Sixty delivers next-gen STB for Altibox

March 30, 2017

Altibox and Sixty have announced that Sixty has been working on a design and development project to support the May 2017 launch of the next generation Altibox set-top solutions. The project is designed to enable Altibox to leverage rich metadata and deliver an enhanced user experience to its customers across a wide range of platforms, including set-top-boxes, iOS, Android and web.

The project has seen Sixty provide: design, front-end development, product development strategy advice, UX services and integration work with the Huawei cloud-based TV infrastructure deployed by Altibox. For this project Sixty used its Ease Framework UX development solution. This component-based JavaScript framework enabled Sixty to quickly design and build a new premium set-top box UX for Altibox. Ease Framework maximises reusability to significantly accelerate the set-top box application development process.

“We’ve worked with Altibox for almost a decade, during which time we have played a key role in the design and UX of its TV and multimedia consumer experiences,” says Kjetil Horneland, CEO, Sixty. “We understand that the user experience plays a fundamental role in the way companies engage with viewers, and this had a huge influence in the way we developed Altibox’s services and UX for the next generation of its STBs. We look forward to driving the next wave of Altibox innovation and enabling new offerings that will delight and entertain its viewers,” concluded Horneland.
