adb-logoADB has announced the shipment of its 50 millionth device; the ADB Wideband gateway being dispatched to Canal Digital Kabel-tv in Norway.

It features the ADB Carbo user interface and will run ADB Multi-Room software, giving users an identical live TV, DVR and video on demand (VOD) experience across set-top boxes and other secure devices throughout the home, regardless of the physical location of the recording or the tuner being accessed.

“We have reached an important milestone in the transition of the company from a traditional hardware focus to one where software and services are key,” said Peter Balchin, CEO at ADB. “This is the cornerstone of our connected homes, connected lives vision where multimedia content and services come from multiple sources and need to seamlessly move between multiple screens and devices, wherever the user happens to be.”

ADB was launched in 1995, producing gateway and set-top products from facilities in Poland, Italy, Ukraine and Taiwan.
