  1. 1. Operators Dilemma: Android STB or "old fashioned" Linux STB
  2. 2. • Despite the fact that the Linux operating system has, until recently, been more common as the Set-Top-Box of choice for the pay-TV market, we now see that operators entering the OTT/IPTV market or those who like to deploy a Hybrid DVBC/T/S solution, are looking for the adaptation of the Android platform.
  3. 3. The following benefits highlight the reasons for selecting Android over Linux STBs: • While mobile devices allow various functionalities via one device, Android opens exciting innovative opportunities for TV service providers. • With Android, the operator can deliver a superb UX, very much in line with today's familiar smartphone and tablet UX, which the user now expects. • Due to its rich eco-system, Android offers a wide range of off-the-shelf applications and games which can be used on the big TV screen. • • As opposed to proprietary UI/Application frameworks on top of Linux, Android is a continously and rapidly evolving operating system, allowing the operator to keep its deployed solution at the cutting-edge of technology Android offers a more advanced and flexible development tool, enabling the creation of richer features and capabilities at low cost and with short time to market. Moreover, as a widely available system, Android enables the operator to use a large developer community to further enhance the deployed solution at any point in time - the operator is no longer dependent on a specific 3rd party company / application framework, which in many cases becomes obsolete within a few years.
  4. 4. • Android free OS license; permissive licensing allows the software to be freely modified and distributed by device manufacturers and other platform developers. • In the past number of years, we have seen many Android-based devices for the TV and mobile marked used to consume high-quality HD sudio content. This has been made possible by advanced security features added by SoC vendors to their solutions, allowing users to consume DRM protected content. Furthermore, when extra protection is needed, the Android device can be hardened, restricting the ability to install any external unsigned application on the device. In this way the Android box will be as hardened as any other Linux box.
  5. 5. • Despite the fact that Linux is currently more common in the market, the above factors contribute to the increased usage of Android as a TV platform. We can actually see a growing demand for Android-based solutions from service providers around the world as they realize the platform's advanced benefits.
  6. 6. • Comigo has created an Android-based STB solution by totally altering the Android framework to suit the TV experience. We have eliminated the grid of unrelated icons on the screen; instead, on opening the system, the user is greeted by a video channel.
  7. 7. • Our solution transforms the TV viewing experience: it has become very personal, social and interactive. Comigo's STBs support IPTV live channels, OTT video, VOD, DVB-X, external USB hard drives, and streams personal content stored on the home network. The STB is operated by using any handheld device as well by a simple remote control.
