Technicolor, Bouygues Telecom team for 4K STB
March 25, 2022
Technicolor Connected Home has partnered with Bouygues Telecom – the network service providers in France with over 26.2 million fixed and mobile subscribers – to develop and deploy an Android 4K UHD STB integrated with Wi-Fi that delivers video experiences for consumers across the French market.
The flexible open platform, called Bbox 4K HDR, allows consumers to experience reliable IPTV-over-Wi-Fi which will enable Bouygues Telecom customers to enjoy a broad spectrum of TV and Android TV services and applications – including OTT video content and gaming – over high performing Wi-Fi.
“Bouygues Telecom began with a concept and design for this new STB, and approached Technicolor Connected Home to make the Bbox 4K HDR a reality because of the company’s expertise and experience in integrating Android ecosystems. The teams from Bouygues Telecom and Technicolor Connected Home worked together successfully to develop an innovative and enhanced user experience for this next-generation STB platform, connected via Wi-Fi to the gateway, which will deliver premium services and experiences demanded by French consumers in a timely fashion. The Bbox 4K HDR launched on February 28, 2022 and is now available to consumers,” said Laure Joslet, Marketing VP for Residential Market at Bouygues Telecom.
“This project illustrates the innovation that continues to emerge from the strategic partnership between Bouygues Telecom and Technicolor Connected Home during the last several years. We have achieved an important step in meeting the constantly evolving needs and desires of highly demanding French consumers,” said Mercedes Pastor, Senior Vice President for the Eurasia Customer Equipment Business Unit of Technicolor Connected Home.
“This new STB platform–based on Android OS technology–offers greater flexibility that enables Bouygues Telecom to keep the device continually updated with state-of-the-art features and allow subscribers to enjoy the latest innovative services and experiences available in the market,” Pastor added.
