DetailsMichelle Clancy | 11 April 2015

Cable and telecom operators can deliver live over-the-top (OTT) video content to Android set-top boxes (STBs) with an integration from Broadpeak and Geniatech.

Broadpeak's nanoCDN technology has been integrated with the ATV1800 Quad Core Android TV box from Geniatech to form the solution. nanoCDN technology extends content delivery approaches into the home network, using equipment such as broadband gateways and STBs.

"The Geniatech Android-based STB is designed to help pay-TV operators deliver an amazing user experience that includes media-rich Web and video content," said Fang Jijun, CEO at Geniatech.

"Yet, given the unpredictable nature of live OTT video consumption, we saw the value in implementing Broadpeak's nanoCDN agent in our devices. The result is a guaranteed high quality of service for our customers at all times and the possibility for operators to deliver live OTT content to virtually any number of subscribers with our STB using the same amount of bandwidth."
