TV application solutions provider Accedo has reached an agreement with French telecom operator Orange to enable an advanced end-to-end solution for the upcoming Orange Live Box Play set-top box.
The Orange Live Box Play uses Accedo's application management solution called Accedo Application Sphere, which provides a customizable front-end user interface with multiple existing applications, as well as a scalable and secure back-end system.
Accedo will be a key enabler of the Orange Appshop section, which will include many applications at the time of launch. Users will be able to access a range of programme-specific contextual apps, further enriching the viewer experience.
Orange's Live Box Play will integrate social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, enabling viewers to access those sites on a split screen whilst watching TV or on-demand programmes. The gyro remote control facilitates navigation and will be equipped with a full keyboard on the back.
