Our unique competence is in hybrid TV and open standard interactive platforms: HbbTV, DVB broadcasting and smart TV apps, content automation tools as well as digital signage. We enable you to distribute your content where it’s wanted, in broadcast or broadband, seamlessly.

Sofia Digital is attending IBC2022 – Stand 1a95 – at the RAI Amsterdam, 9-12 September 2022. Available demos include OTT/VOD & Targeted advertising solutions, as well as PSI/SI and DVB-I products. We would like to meet with you, book your meeting with Sofia Digital here.

We are currently looking for experienced developers to work on new projects, develop our products, participate in platform development and architecture design.

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 back-end 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.

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.
