Dish TV India and SEI present smart solutions on Android TV APAC Summit

BANGKOK, THAILAND — Dish TV, India’s leading direct-to-home (DTH) company, has been attempting the transformation from traditional Linux set-top box to Android TV smart set-top box since 2018 and expects to expand IoT business based on the Android TV box. Under this background, SEI Robotics, an international smart solution provider, proposes a solution based on the Google Ecosystem that combines the strengths of Android TV, the Google Cloud Platform, and the ecosystem partners.

At the subscribers end, SEI completes CBS integration on 4K hybrid set-top boxes, and integrates the OTT and DVB content services of DishTV to bring users a seamless audio and video experience. SEI proposes a SaaS solution based on the business of Dish TV. It can operate the two brands Dish TV and D2H on the same platform and provide users with different video programs using the same set top box. To improve users’ watching time and other key indicators, SEI combines the EPG of traditional DVB with the OTT metadata of Dish TV WatchO to recommend users’ favorite programs through an intelligent recommendation algorithm.

Moreover, based on this smart solution SEI extends the IoT products and services. Users only need to plug in the IoT module on the 4K Hybird box to turn the set-top box into a smart gateway, and all smart accessories and cameras are ready to go. Users only need to scan the QR code and they can start the smart home journey right away. “The IoT module not only realizes the expansion of set-top box business, but also solves the problem of difficult pairing and complex operation of smart devices. Frictionless users experience could help us promote our IoT business.” said Sunil Kumar, Head of Product Engineering, Dish TV.

The combination of Android TV and Google Cloud help Dish TV achieve the transformation from traditional set-top box to smart set-top box, and help increase users’ content consumption at the same time. “SEI will continue to strengthen cooperation with Google Ecosystem to help Dish TV constantly provide users with safe, convenient, stable and innovative products and services.” said Jeff Yin, CEO at SEI Robotics.
