Zenterio, a TV and multiscreen solutions provider, has announced that Telekom Romania is using Zenterio OS to power a new series of STBs for its TV Interactiv IPTV service. Zenterio OS is an independent operating system for interactive TV, supporting software harmonisation on any STB platform across different countries, vendors, and ecosystems. Thanks to Zenterio OS, Telekom Romania end users can now enjoy a seamless user experience and rich feature set, including live TV, VoD, network PVR, time-shift TV, USB PVR, and fast channel change, on the new STBs.
“Zenterio OS has been successfully powering our IPTV STBs for the last several years. Recently, we wanted to introduce a new STB hardware vendor and model to optimise hardware sourcing and leverage the harmonization strategy in Deutsche Telekom Group,” said Roxana Baias, marketing director at Telekom Romania. “Zenterio OS made the introduction of new set-top boxes efficient and smooth, without any requirement for software integration. As the expense of the porting was a fraction of a full end-to-end integration project, Zenterio’s solution resulted in an efficient way of using resources for Telekom Romania.”
