Simple.TV is expanding into Europe with a manufacturing and distribution partnership with Silicondust USA Inc to build and distribute a streaming DVR device to bring broadcast, over-the-air (OTA) television to connected devices everywhere.
Using Silicondust's hardware design, and powered by Zenverge's ZN 200 chipset and TransAll transcoding engine, the collaboration will power an OTA and over-the-top (OTT) digital media experience for Simple.TV's TV everywhere service, and will provide support for international broadcast standards such as DVB-T2, DVB-C, DVB-S2 and ISDB-T.
A new device based on the partnership will be available in the United States in late 2013; international markets will be introduced in early 2014.
"We're extremely pleased to be partnering with Silicondust, the leaders in networked TV tuners," said Mark Ely, CEO of Simple.TV. "Their exceptional hardware design, manufacturing, and distribution capabilities are a perfect match with our TV everywhere services and applications. Together, we will deliver an exceptional streaming DVR solution for consumers who are looking to combine the best of broadcast content with OTT streaming."
