Inview signs German Smart TV deal

Connected TV technology specialist Inview has signed an exclusive deal with consumer electronics distributor, Altech SetOne to deploy its Smart TV platform across German-speaking markets.

Inview will supply Altech SetOne with an IP platform that will be sold across its range of DVB-S products, giving German consumers access to a range of Smart TV applications.

The Inview platform integrates content delivered via the internet with broadcast programming. The software has been designed to work on lower-end devices.

Keith Wiggins, commercial director at Inview Technology said: “The Inview platform gives the end-user access to Smart TV functionality on a basic zapper box, giving them the benefits of a Smart TV platform without the price tag. By operating on zapper boxes we are opening up Smart TV to a mass market audience rather than a niche set of early-adopters.”
