Inverto Digital Labs launches Volksbox, its advanced hybrid HD+ receiver for the German market

LUXEMBOURG — Inverto Digital Labs, the pioneering designer and vendor of broadcast technologies and equipment, has unveiled today the Volksbox, a set top box platform for the reception of HD+ satellite services. This product, now available in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg, is an advanced hybrid satellite receiver compliant with the HD+ specifications, and incorporates Nagravision’s Conditional Access System (CAS), a WiFi interface and a built-in browser for easy access to internet services based on and beyond those offered by Astra’s new HbbTV standard.

“Volksbox is our answer to what our customers want – leading edge technology, that offers a cross-media experience spanning both satellite television and the Internet; via a platform that offers seamless integration across service offerings at a price-point that delivers unparalleled value. Volksbox HD+ STB creates and defines an entirely new category of devices that will connect users with content and apps in a much more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. The Volksbox is a statement of our fundamental belief in not just delivering a product, but a whole new experience; our industry leading R&D team brings you a revolutionary HD user-interface that combines ease-of-use with advanced services allowing the consumer to browse the web for radio and video, obtain quality add-on web-based services, all while watching regular TV.” says Yannick-Olivier Laperche, Inverto’s VP Sales & Marketing.

The Volksbox receiver is available for consumers in retail these days across Germany, Austria (with no HD+ support) and Luxembourg. Volksbox is a registered trademark of Inverto.
