Mirada surpasses deployment of one million set-top boxes powered by its Android TV Operator Tier offering
Mirada (AIM: MIRA), a leading provider of integrated software solutions for digital TV operators and broadcasters, announces that across its customer base it has surpassed the deployment of one million set-top boxes (“STB”) powered by its Android TV Operator Tier offering.
Android TV is fast becoming the platform of choice for operators. It offers superior functionality, with an app store, voice control, personalised recommendations and a user interface that puts content first. It also grants operators and service providers the ability to easily layer on their own branding.
Using statistics published by technology research firm Omdia, Mirada STBs now constitute approximately 5% of the expected 20 million global Android TV Operator Tier STB installed base in 2021. Omdia forecasts that 50 million Android TV Operator Tier STBs will be in use in 2024, with Mirada confident of continuing to consolidate its market share.
José-Luis Vázquez, CEO of Mirada, commented: “To have rolled out our Android TV Operator Tier set-top boxes at a rate of circa 17,000 per week despite the global chipset shortage and installation challenges posed by the pandemic is both a great achievement and strong validation of our decision to back this technology.
Android TV is now seen as the gold standard in the industry, and having established ourselves as one of the world’s preeminent providers, we are incredibly excited about the growth opportunities that lie ahead with both existing and prospective customers as market conditions continue to normalise.”
