LONDON — Video software provider Synamedia has integrated a range of its video offerings with Android TV and has extended its Infinite cloud TV platform to support Android TV devices.
Using Google’s Broadcast Stack for hybrid set top boxes (STBs) powered by Android TV, Synamedia has developed pre-integrated solutions including user interfaces, watermarking and broadcast/OTT security, Clarissa business insights, and Synamedia Iris addressable advertising.
As Synamedia notes, video service providers “can now pick and mix from these pre-integrated services to build an Android TV solution that best meets their needs, while also having the option to use the entire bundle for a complete end-to-end package.”
Synamedia is also working to define new interfaces and integration points for advanced features so that operators can select products for their hybrid Android TV tools.
Google’s Broadcast Stack, launched in October 2020, is designed to accelerate the reach of the Android TV operating system by providing the video technology providers with clarity and direction about how hybrid services can be deployed rapidly and economically. “Operators can take advantage of Android TV’s proven functionality and well-defined upgrade path, as well as having the flexibility to add custom features for their particular needs,” Synamedia says.
