Wipro Limited a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, today announced the launch of its Next-Gen ATSC 3.0 solution for Pay TV service providers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), original design manufacturers (ODMs), smart TV manufacturers and semiconductor companies based in North
America. The company has partnered with Airwavz.tv, a Seattle-based startup, pioneering the design and sale of NextGen TV receivers and antennas, for this solution.
ATSC 3.0 is a major version of the ATSC standards for television broadcasting created by the Advanced Television Systems Committee. Wipro’s Next-Gen ATSC 3.0 solution provides full support for hybrid TV viewing and enables viewing of broadcast video content on a range of devices such as set-top-boxes (STBs}, smart TVs, media gateways, mobiles, tablets, dongles and in-car entertainment units. This solution enables its customers to quickly build immersive and interactive receiver solutions and position themselves uniquely within the hybrid TV viewing user segment. The solution will be compatible with Android TV and other operating systems, thus enabling quick integration on the desired device.
The solution incorporates both legacy ATSC 1.0 and Next-Gen ATSC 3.0 delivery systems, with a multi-process architecture and well-defined abstraction layers for easy porting. It also provides multi-type application support across HTML5, Android, iOS and native apps, and comes pre-packaged with Wipro’s MPEG DASH and HbbTV components for multi-screen delivery.
