Thanks for everybody who visited! For those did not attend the event here is a summary of our latest developments that we presented at the show.

Reach all smart TV households with a single HbbTV application

Together with our partner Booxmedia, a leading provider of cloud-TV solutions, we demonstrated a live service for cross-device delivery of premium TV content via a HbbTV application, and usage with various mobile devices. To find out more about Booxmedia, you can visit booxmedia.com.

HbbTV is on air with Sofia Backstage

Sofia Digital’s HbbTV technology is powering transmissions in Finland and Hungary, with many more pilot and trial installations successfully deployed. In Hungary MTVA recently started using HbbTV on their terrestrial and satellite networks. Sofia Digital has provided both the Backstage HbbTV Server and expertise for end-user applications for MTVA. In ANGA COM we showed these services to visitors running from a live feed including the MTVA portal.

Sofia Digital Enhanced EPG application has been further developed to support also network PVR, time-shifting and VOD capabilities – all conveniently accessible via the same user interface. Together with Booxmedia we were able to easily integrate cloud TV features into our EPG application and demonstrate during the event.
