- Solution brings ATSC functionality to global footprint of NextGen TV markets
NEW YORK — BitRouter, a leading provider of software for ATSC 3.0 receivers, today announced it has concluded successful beta trials of its ZapperBox M1 ATSC 3.0 and 1.0 receiver. The trials cover nearly all the 56 NextGen TV markets in the US as well as Jamaica. The company is shipping the latest version of its ATSC3pak software with each new ZapperBox. All existing ZapperBox units are being updated with the latest software release. ATSC3pak implements both ATSC 3.0 and ATSC 1.0 standards and is currently available for both Android™ and Linux®.
BitRouter’s president and founder, Gopal Miglani commented, “We are excited to move towards upgrading existing ZapperBox devices with Pause TV and 14-day guide data subscriptions by the end of 2022. Support for full DVR, MPEG Media Transport (MMT) and copy-protected content will follow in the first quarter of 2023.”
BitRouter has also launched a new e-commerce platform to provide direct-to-consumer sales of its product suite. For a limited time, the company will be offering free shipping for orders placed on the ZapperBox website.
“With today’s milestone announcement from BitRouter, NextGen TV viewers now have more choices than ever, further fueling the ongoing deployment of ATSC 3.0 in the U.S. and Jamaica,” said Madeleine Noland, ATSC President. “I brought my own ZapperBox to NAB NYC for a little ‘show and tell’ at the ATSC booth #1933. Congratulations to BitRouter on their success.”
