TechnoTrend Görler has announced its move into the fast emerging HbbTV market by partnering with ANT
, the influential provider of software and services for digital TV. TechnoTrend Görler has licensed the ANT Galio HbbTV Platform in order to target TV service providers and operators in the HbbTV retail market.
HbbTV was announced in August 2009 as a new industry initiative aimed at harmonising the delivery of broadcast and broadband TV services. Since the announcement, the specification has been submitted to ETSI for review and has received strong interest from across the industry with over 50 supporters now listed on the HbbTV website. Driven by broadcasters, software solution providers and device manufacturers, HbbTV is well positioned to deliver a scalable hybrid solution across Europe.
TechnoTrend Görler’s first satellite HD receiver with HbbTV will support flexible reception of HDTV, encrypted HD+ programs, additional Pay TV packages and user-friendly HbbTV services. TechnoTrend Görler’s digital receivers are well known as customer orientated solutions with outstanding picture quality.
The first TechnoTrend Görler products to be based on ANT Galio HbbTV Platform, will be premiered at the IBC show in September 2010 and will roll-out in the German retail market in the run up to Christmas 2010.
