Technicolor’s Gaëtan Delcroix Joins “Deploying Android TV Operator Tier STBs: A Masterclass from Com Hem”

Technicolor participated in a Videonet live interactive broadcast webinar about a real-life case study on the deployment of Com Hem’s next-gen OTT set-top box platform.

  • World’s first known major hybrid Android N deployment using Operator Tier provides a fully operator-customized experience with integrated Google TV services.

Gaëtan Delcroix, Vice President, Video Product Unit, Technicolor, spoke during a webcast organized by Videonet titled, “Deploying Android TV Operator Tier STBs: A Masterclass from Com Hem.” In this live interactive broadcast webinar, participants had the opportunity to hear a detailed analysis of how Com Hem, one of Sweden's leading suppliers of television, high-speed broadband, and fixed-telephony – along with 3SS (lead project partner, also responsible for UX/UI front-end), Technicolor (STB hardware and middleware), and Verimatrix (revenue security) – collaborated to deliver what is believed to be the world’s first major hybrid Android N deployment using Operator Tier.

Providing a fully operator-customized experience with integrated Google TV services, this multi-network (DVB-C, IPTV, DVB-T, OTT) implementation, based on a single unified platform, is truly pioneering. The people who lived and breathed the project shared their learnings in this webcast, with a deep dive discussion into:

  • Reasons why an operator might choose Android TV and Operator Tier
  • How an operator can customize the UX on top of Android TV
  • How to make sure you are compliant with the Operator Tier requirements
  • How the project was managed, including the use ofSAFeagile framework
  • The role of Google as a project partner
  • Managing and providing services across multiple networks with optimum efficiency
  • Key security/hardware performance and integration considerations when thinking about Android TV
  • Integrating partner apps and universal search on Com Hem Tv Hub.
