This is now a fully tested production ready unit.”
The company has already signed equipment supply deals with content distributors and OTT providers serving the US, Russian, Polish and Irish markets.
Other enhancements include a games adapter, allowing Android games designed for touch screen to be played with a standard remote control or external joystick/gamepad and upgrades have been made in the area of advanced apps and TV integration, enabling seamless delivery of TV, whilst gaming or running apps such as Facebook, browsers and other web pages.
