AirTies Wireless Networks, a provider of managed Wi-Fi Mesh solutions to global service providers, has formed a strategic partnership with DOTSCREEN, the multi-screen app developer and a UI specialised agency.
Under the agreement, DOTSCREEN’s user interface (UI) will be integrated into AirTies’ 4K STBs. DOTSCREEN develops and licenses custom multiscreen video applications for Internet-connected mass-market devices, such as Smart TVs, OTT boxes including Roku, AppleTV and Android TV, STBs, game consoles, HbbTV, smartphones, tablets, and smartspeakers. DOTSCREEN applications are used by major publishers, broadcasters and telcos around the world, including HBO, Fox, Turner, Disney, ESPN, CBS, Vodafone, Orange, Telefonica, beIN Sports, Mediaset, TF1, Freenet TV, and more.
“Pay-TV operator differentiation increasingly comes from the overall end-user experience, as they look for the right combination between state-of-the-art user interfaces on one hand, and robust set-top boxes on the other,” said Stanislas Leridon and Pascal-Hippolyte Besson, the cofounding managers of DOTSCREEN. “DOTSCREEN’s UI emphasizes live TV, rather than TV applications, to reflect the most commonly used method of watching content worldwide. We are proud to integrate with AirTies to guarantee a cost-effective and on-time delivery of our operator-tier, custom UI for the Air 7415 and 7430 set-top boxes.”
“We are excited to integrate DOTSCREEN’s state-of-the-art user experience into our 4K/UHD set-top boxes and deliver all of the performance and versatility of Android TV, as well as Linux,” said Metin Taskin, CTO of AirTies. “With the DOTSCREEN UI on our compact and cost effective Air 7415 and 7430 boxes, operators can offer their customers next-generation viewing experiences with access to all the latest video applications, in addition to everything 4K/UHD has to offer.”
