Broadpeak and set-top box software solution 3Screen Solutions (3SS) have combined their technologies to offer Android TV users a more superior and enhanced viewing experience.
Broadpeak has also joined 3SS’ 3Ready Entertainment Ecosystem — a portfolio of complementary capabilities, technical deployment options, key vendor partnership and integration network, all built around the 3SS Android TV front-end-UI/UX framework.
3Ready is the front-end UI solution that delivers advanced TV experiences to 10 million homes worldwide – suitable for operators and broadcasters planning to launch customised Android TV-based services on multiple devices, with customer-centric innovation.
3Ready Control Center provides targeting and A/B testing capabilities so service providers can quickly and clearly understand what new features will appeal to viewers. Providers can obtain resource efficiencies through the ability to remotely manage all STB and multi-screen apps in a unified way, all from one location.
Recently launched S4Streaming is now pre-integrated with 3Ready. Through a combination of server-side technologies, S4Streaming accurately assesses available bandwidth at any given moment and uses operator-defined business rules to select the stream with the appropriate quality. This enables control over the video QoE and optimises usage of network resources, and the use of multi-resolution even in a low-latency context.
“S4Streaming integrated with 3Ready enables comprehensive control and efficiencies over the entire efficacy of the Android TV user experience, optimising what the viewer sees on-screen, and how they interact with it, while ensuring best possible video delivery and playback,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO at Broadpeak.
“We are teaming up because we share the same goal, namely to provide our customers with maximum flexibility and control over their service quality, so that they can deliver the ultimate Android TV viewing experiences on any device,” said Pierre Donath, 3SS Chief Product Officer.
