iWedia DVB Stack is certified by Netflix on a Hailstorm Hybrid STB
iWedia, a provider of software components and solutions for TV devices for service operators and consumer electronics manufacturers, has announced that its broadcast stack has been certified on a Hybrid Hailstorm operator STB. Hailstorm is a Netflix device scaling program based on Android TV that aims for “faster time to market and lower engineering efforts”.
The Hailstorm Hybrid program objective is to accelerate Operator’ pre-integration work on an Android TV Hybrid set-top box (STB) and to achieve a shorter time to market deployment while ensuring all Netflix performance/quality metrics are met.
Involved as System Integrator in Hailstorm program from its start, iWedia took great care of ensuring that the Broadcast playback does not affect Netflix UX and that all transitions and resources allocation/release are done properly. Part of their System Integration service, iWedia has built strong domain expertise in Netflix service integration and certification processes and has played a significant role in deploying the service on operator devices worldwide.
“We are thrilled to have our DVB stack certified on a Hailstorm Hybrid operator STB – and to be one of the first in the industry of doing so”, said Krsto Lazic, iWedia’s Product Director. “Incorporating its quality and performance to more efficient STB projects is the best way to serve our customers” he added.
