Atlanta (October 22, 2018) TV as a Service pioneer ZATTOO has added 4K / UHD functionality to the multi tenant TV as a service platform, which already serves 25+ operators worldwide. 4K / UHD is now also available to customers in the US. The stunning, high quality streams will be showcased at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Atlanta on October 22-25, 2018.
ZATTOO operates TV services for telcos, cable operators, and streaming providers. ZATTOO enables best in class TV and video experiences with state of the art features and functions (e.g. Live Pause, nDVR, Catch-up, VOD, Ad-Insertion), on a wide range of devices (e.g. STBs, Smart TVs, Mobiles, Tablets, Streaming Boxes). All this is provided as an end-to-end package, including operations, 2nd level support, and continuous development of the platform and all front-end applications.
When entering the US market in 2018 with TV Everywhere for HOTWIRE Communications in Florida, ZATTOO has started the next phase of its global expansion in this highly dynamic region. For HOTWIRE Communications’ mobile TV service ZATTOO deployed a central “TV Hub” at their co-location facility in Fort Lauderdale thus creating ideal conditions to serve additional operators in the Americas.
4K / UHD was first launched to SALT, the telco who disrupted the Swiss market with a disruptive TV offering co-developed by Apple and ZATTOO. The main Set Top Box of SALT’s service is the Apple TV 4K, which is enhanced with operator login and pre loading of the operator’s applications and settings. For 4K / UHD, ZATTOO is also using the HEVC / H.265 video codec. High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) is a standard for encoding video content and images. Areas of application include the transmission of ultra-high-definition television programs, consumer electronics (4K resolution Blu-ray Disc players, camcorders) or streaming services.
ZATTOO is showcasing 4K / UHD at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2018 at its own stand #1512. With the launch of 4K for SALT, this expansion of the ZATTOO platform is also available to other B2B customers in order to continuously develop their TV service.
