HTTV has announced the integration of httvLink, its HbbTV and HTML5 compliant TV operating system for connected STBs, with Zinwell receivers.

Based on Broadcom BCM7563 DVB-T2 chipset this receiver will offer an advanced and cost-effective TV experience. The joint solution will be demonstrated at BroadcastAsia event.

Zinwell is a Taiwan based STB manufacturer with a strong penetration in the Asian and European markets. The Zinwell STB’s integrated with HTTV’s TV operating system, httvLink, will offers DVB-T2 modulation with advanced internet based services.

“This collaboration with Zinwell and Broadcom will enable us to provide consumers with a best-in-class user experience,” said Regis Saint Girons, HTTV’s CEO.

“HbbTV is the obvious choice for the fast moving emerging markets in Asean and Africa. The Broadcast / Broadband nature of HbbTV allows to pave the way to the growing broadband penetration while still perfectly addressing markets that do have access to the internet with enhanced Broadcast services.

River Chiang, VP of sales and marketing from Zinwell added: “The interest in HbbTV in the Asia Pacific region rockets. The integration of HTTV’s TV Operating System with Zinwell’s hardware will allow us to have an attractive proposition for markets who are seeking a cost effective solution”
