Zinwell selects HTTV for its HbbTV DVB-T2 receiver

HTTV has the pleasure to announce the integration of httvLink, its HbbTV and HTML5 compliant TV operating system for connected STBs, with Zinwell receivers. Based on Broadcom BCM7563 DVB-T2 chipset this receiver will offer an advanced and cost-effective TV experience. The joint solution will be demonstrated at BroadcastAsia event.

Zinwell is a leading Taiwan based STB manufacturer with a strong penetration in the Asian and European markets. The Zinwell STB’s integrated with HTTV’s TV operating system, httvLink, will offers DVB-T2 modulation with advanced internet based services

HTTV is deeply committed to the success of the HbbTV standard and participates to its improvement. Its httvLink TVOS is fully compatible with the HbbTV 1.5 standard. This integration will enable Zinwell to offer a competitive HbbTV solution in term of cost and performances without compromising on quality.

HbbTV is a very compelling value proposition for any country going through their Analogue Switch Off. As an open standard, HbbTV accompanies the transition from the pure broadcast mass market to the fast growing connected world and is rapidly developing in Europe, APAC (Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, New-Zealand,..) and Africa (Senegal, Ivory coast,…) gradually replacing proprietary middleware solutions.

Régis Saint Girons, HTTV’s CEO declares: “This collaboration with Zinwell and Broadcom will enable us to provide consumers with a best-in-class user experience.” He added “HbbTV is the obvious choice for the fast moving emerging markets in Asean and Africa. The Broadcast / Broadband nature of HbbTV allows to pave the way to the growing broadband penetration while still perfectly addressing markets that do have access to the internet with enhanced Broadcast services.

River Chiang, Vice president of Sales and Marketing from Zinwell said: “The interest in HbbTV in the Asia Pacific region rockets. The integration of HTTV’s TV Operating System with Zinwell’s hardware will allow us to have an attractive proposition for markets who are seeking a cost effective solution”

The httvLink solution will be showcased at Broadcast Asia, on httv booth 4B-06 and on Zinwell booth 4C2-06.
