With 20+ Years of Experience
Powering Smart Screens
Sofia Digital brings new value-adding services and applications to different terminals. Our unique competence is in hybrid TV and open standard interactive platforms: HbbTV, DVB broadcasting and Smart TV apps, as well as content automation tools. Company’s focus areas are OTT platforms, targeted advertising solutions and testing services. We enable you to distribute your content where it is wanted, in broadcast or broadband, seamlessly.
Sofia Digital was once again a sponsor of the HbbTV Symposium, this time in Prague. The 10th HbbTV Symposium was held on 9-10 November 2022 and focused on Targeted Advertising and DVB-I.
DVB is the international open standard for digital broadcasting with over 1 billion compatible receivers deployed. In our free whitepaper you will learn the benefits in switching from a hardware-based head-end to a software solution.
Tier 1 broadcasters and operators often have an existing backend environment complete with encoding, transcoding, DRM, CDN and content management systems. These companies design and develop the OTT experience in-house with dedicated teams. This generates a demand for an approach where the client-side application, multichannel UI and UX are created and integrated into the existing and widely deployed customer environment.
TV APPLICATION TESTING - CERTIFICATION TESTING
Having your applications or products tested by Sofia Digital opens doors to all TV markets. We help you ensure your product complies with all the necessary standards.
Our comprehensive receiver zoo, in-house testing tools and signal generators, as well as our over 10 years of experience in DVB and hybrid testing gives us a unique position to deliver perfect R&D and QA support for your DVB and TV products.
MORE THAN DESIGNING THE USER INTERFACE
When compared to computers and even mobile phones, designing the user experience and user interfaces for TV is still a relatively new area. It is also a fundamentally different platform, and the way we consume our content is different. User interaction is mostly done with the remote control, a relatively clumsy way of navigating compared to mouse and keyboard or touch interfaces.
The Architects of Change
Sofia Digital has been a reliable partner for the creation of new TV services since the digitalization of television started. We help networks to bring their content to new platforms that enrich the viewer experience, generating new business.
