Cubiware has announced a middleware licensing agreement with Sinwatec, a Russian company specialising in electronic manufacturing.
Under the agreement Sinwatec becomes a reseller of Cubiware products and plans to include CubiTV that will run on Sinwatec manufactured hardware.
Formerly known as Promsvyaz, Sinwatec is based in Ufa, Republic of Bashkortostan, and manufactures a line of set-top boxes for IPTV, cable, terrestrial, and media player applications.
“We are thrilled to be working with Sinwatec to bring the full potential of advanced pay-TV to additional markets,” says Jakub Górski, CEO of Cubiware. “Sinwatec’s reputation for value and innovation in this region will open doors for us and will provide an opportunity for pay-TV operators in this growing market to see first-hand what our CubiTV middleware and portal solutions have to offer.”
Sinwatec’s product line for pay-TV includes the IPTV 103 HD STB, which handles full HD video playback and supports a complete feature set for the latest digital television capabilities, which Cubiware says makes it an ideal complement to CubiTV’s own advanced capabilities.
