Earlier in spring of this year SmartLabs has successfully implemented a contract for the supply to MTS of IPTV set-top boxes SML-282.
The SmartLabs SML-292 Premium IPTV set-top box supports Full HD (1920x1080) and enables enhanced connectivity of external devices via two USB ports, optical SPDIF, HDMI with HDCP, and other interfaces. Moreover, the set-top boxes are fully compatible with HDTV and 3D TVs and projectors. Support of the smart Adaptive Streaming technology makes the set-top box compatible with the OTT solutions.
With SML-292 the customers of MTS Home TV can get a wider range of IPTV services. This is possible because SML-292 Premium has an embedded hard drive to enable even more value-added services (Local PVR, PushVoD, PauseLiveTV)
The subscribers of MTS Home TV can purchase or lease the set-top boxes.
"We are happy that MTS subscribers will be able to enjoy the benefits of the SmartLabs new gen set-top boxes. Versatility, simplicity and ease of operation, stylish and discreet design and high image quality are the key drivers that attract users to SML-292 Premium making these STBs an effective tool for marketing and promotion of IPTV services. SML-292 Premium are future-proof to support upcoming 3D digital TV capabilities and ensure high quality of the operator's services in the long run", says Mikhail Grachev, CEO of SmartLabs.
