Albis Elcon To Offer IPTV And OTT Services At IBC2015

News Image
Albis Elcon is to reveal its total solutions approach to delivering IPTV and OTT services at IBC2015.

At the heart of each Albis Elcon solution is the company's SceneGate set-top boxes (STBs), which support a variety of traditional (e.g. IPTV, broadcast television, and VOD) and value-added services (e.g. OTT, interactive content, and media sharing). Through their design, reliability, and flexibility, SceneGate STB solutions help service providers deliver the ultimate television experience to subscribers. Albis Elcon's total solutions strategy is designed to reduce operators' CAPEX and dramatically shorten time to market for new services.

Technology Demos
NEW SceneGate Flex STB
Albis Elcon will provide several live demonstrations of its next-generation SceneGate STB at IBC2015, showing attendees how they can use the STB solution in various applications.

The newest SceneGate Flex STB model is based on a powerful ARM CPU and GPU architecture that supports broadcast, broadband, and OTT services, combined with the latest STB middleware and broadband software solutions. Through the SoC's high-performance ARM Mali GPU, service providers can deliver ultra-smooth 3D graphics, enhancing the user experience. The SoC features HEVC decoding, enabling service providers to deliver HD-quality content at the lowest possible bitrates. Using the Albis Elcon's SceneGate STB, service providers can offer high-quality content to a greater number of customers using less bandwidth, or more channels using the same amount of bandwidth.

Turnkey Solution
At IBC2015, Albis Elcon will showcase its next-generation SceneGate STB as a turnkey solution that is pre-integrated with third-party middleware, conditional access, and backend systems, enabling service providers to introduce new revenue-generating offerings with a very short time to market (i.e. approximately 14 days). The turnkey solution offers a "pay-as-you-grow" approach to scalability, significantly reducing CAPEX for service providers. By providing operators with a reliable, affordable, and low-maintenance carrier-grade STB solution, Albis Elcon makes it easy to deliver a cutting-edge television experience to subscribers in a matter of just weeks.

During the demo Albis Elcon will also highlight a variety of new features for the SceneGate STB, such as internal WiFi, USB 3.0, and HDMI 1.4, to enable a more connected home entertainment experience for end users.

Key Products on Display
SceneGate 8073 and 8083 STBs
Also on display at IBC2015 will be Albis Elcon's globally deployed SceneGate 8073 and SceneGate 8083 STBs. The SceneGate 8083 is ideal for service providers that want to deploy new revenue-generating services such as multiscreen live TV, VOD, and catch-up TV (for up to seven days). Featuring a simple UI, the SceneGate 8083 can run on an exclusively developed global CDN. The platform is based on an open software architecture that can be easily integrated with today's popular OTT services. DLNA-based media sharing is available, enabling in-home streaming and multiroom environments.

The SceneGate 8073 is suited more toward operators looking for an entry-level OTT and IPTV STB capable of delivering crystal-clear 1080p HD resolution. The SceneGate 8073 features a contemporary, extremely small footprint — 85 mm wide x 85 mm deep x 35 mm high — and advanced functionalities, such as DLNA-based in-home media streaming and sharing, offering service providers a cost-effective solution for delivering a superior television experience to end users.
