“Our work with Foxtel highlights our continued leadership and combined expertise in professional services and software integration,” said Steve McCaffery, senior vice-president of Services Providers, International, CommScope.
With bespoke solutions from CommScope, The New Foxtel Experience will deliver thousands of hours of TV and on-demand movies for subscribers, as well as access to Netflix through Foxtel’s iQ4 set-top box. Whether subscribers are streaming videos, recording live programming, or browsing through Foxtel’s massive on-demand library, the iQ4 makes it simple to get everything they want all in one place.
Well known for its communications technologies, CommScope worked with Foxtel to deliver the iQ4’s full-stack software platform, which integrates to multiple back-office systems, thus providing a seamless broadcast and IP connected user experience (UX).
The iQ4 combines broadcast satellite and IP capabilities in a single, powerful device capable of delivering 4K broadcast resolution, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a 1TB hard-drive – allowing subscribers to watch what they want, when they want … the way it was meant to be watched.
McCaffery concluded: “We are setting a new standard for the TV experience by combining the latest technology in support of the growing number of video formats that consumers enjoy. Foxtel’s new iQ4 user interface brings it all together in a single, seamless experience, and we’re delighted by its positive reception in Australia.”
