Key Products and Technology Demos
SceneGate(TM) 9300
Making its IBC2013 debut is Albis Technologies' SceneGate(TM) 9300, a powerful HD DVB/IPTV STB that supports on-demand, linear TV, and over-the-top (OTT) services. Through a compact, modular-based design with integrated SD memory card support and an HDD slot, the SceneGate 9300 increases service providers' revenue streams by providing them with the flexibility to add advanced IPTV services like time-shifted TV and local PVR in the field. The platform's robust 1600-MIPS dual processor ensures an exceptional picture quality for end-users, delivering HD resolution up to 1080p60 via an HDMI(R) 1.4a interface. The future-proof solution also supports HD picture-in-picture (PiP), is 3D TV ready, and incorporates a graphics CPU supporting OpenGL(R) ES 2.0 and WebGL(TM), for a superior television experience.
A flexible SDK supports open APIs for integration with native- or browser-based middleware clients and applications. Using Albis Technologies' open API technology, the platform leverages a unified media framework to enable seamless integration with IPTV and OTT channels. Advanced system-on-chip technology provides enhanced processing power and memory, allowing service providers to offer feature-rich applications and customizable user interfaces. End-users can easily connect accessories -- such as wireless dongles, keyboards, and storage devices -- to the STB to optimize their connected television experience. Sophisticated security features guarantee the protection of a service provider's valuable assets.
