CreNova Technology has implemented an Opera-based
HbbTV retail strategy across Europe. CreNova is offering set-top boxes that provide TV-watchers additional advanced services, such as video on demand and catch-up TV.
"It is clear that the future of the set-top box relies on delivering services such as catch-up TV and VOD in a user-friendly manner," said Metin Atalan, CEO, CreNova. "HbbTV offers an excellent opportunity to deliver new services in a hybrid environment. We selected Opera, as we found they deliver the best product and highest performance in the market."
“Opera offers a proven technology that has been shipped on millions of set-top boxes and TVs," said Frode Hernes, VP of Products, TV and Connected Devices, Opera Software. “This technology, coupled with CreNova's know-how in set-top boxes, results in a ready-to-market HbbTV solution with a feature-rich user experience."
CreNova has a strong understanding of the set-top box market and is well positioned to deliver a wide range of set-top boxes that can incorporate interactive new applications using the Opera HbbTV browser.
