GENEVA, Switzerland — Advanced Digital Broadcast (ADB) [SIX: ADBN] today announced that it has been selected by Volia, Ukraine’s largest pay-TV provider with nearly two million subscribers, to deliver OTT and hybrid OTT/cable set-top boxes, software, and software integration services. The project will set the foundation for Volia’s further expansion into new on-demand and cloud-based services.

The deal represents ADB’s first customer engagement in Ukraine. Volia will be using two new ADB set-top box models: the ADB-1720CW for hybrid cable and IP/OTT and the ADB-1720W for IP/OTT HD environments.

ADB is also managing the software integration with Volia’s existing third-party applications. The project is already underway with completion slated for later this year.

We believe that ADB’s products and software integration services are helping us to achieve this goal. We have been impressed by ADB’s professionalism and its ability to deliver cost-effective products and software integration services for a hybrid, multi-screen world,” said Gyorgy Zsembery, CEO at Volia.
