NDS supplying next-generation platform for Bbox

Bouygues Telecom is working with NDS to provide the technology platform for the next generation of its Bbox IPTV set-top.

NDS is providing integration services for the launch of the new platform, together with integration consultancy and a selection of critical software components to enable an enhanced pay TV experience.

The NDS set-top box software components to be deployed by Bouygues include a graphical engine to power a user interface with HD and 3D capability and an application manager engine to enable the development and management of new apps based on HTML5 and Flash.

Yves Caseau, executive vice-president, technologies, services and innovation, Bouygues Telecom, said: “We are exceptionally proud of our new platform – and more so in the collaborative nature of the development process. We were very selective in the partners that we chose for this project, and with their extensive track record of innovation and integration expertise, NDS is the perfect choice to support us in creating a TV experience that will greatly satisfy the needs of our subscribers.”
