Android TV certifications
Technicolor leads in software integration and certifications for Android TV set-top-box platforms. As manufacturer of the STB, we are responsible for Android-TV certification of the device and for Android TV maintenance defined in the contract. Technicolor has strong experience in certification, with dedicated test and certification teams that are the most experienced in the industry, to optimize Operator’s time to market. Today, Technicolor has implemented more than 30 Android TV letter upgrades, and by far the majority of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+ certifications.
Android TV Operator Tier
With the “Operator Tier” program, the Android TV platform allows for enhanced customizations, increasing its attractiveness for Service Providers wanting to keep control over their subscribers’ brand experience. Technicolor’s TV stack is bringing differentiation to Android TV set-top box devices by seamlessly integrating all traditional Pay-TV features, such as front-end configurations, security solutions, or parental control in the Android TV environment. Technicolor’s software approach minimizes dependencies between the TV stack and partner apps, facilitating integration and updates for third-party software modules.
Android TV Security
While Android TV is gaining momentum among Pay-TV operators, content providers are strengthening their requirements in terms of content protection, making it a decisive feature in the choice of their device manufacturer. With more than 20 years of Conditional Access Systems and Digital Rights Management solutions integration, dedicated security teams, and ISO 27001 certification at the company level, Technicolor understands the complexity and the importance of outstanding implementations of content protection solutions in a fast-evolving market.
