WIZTIVI FRAMEWORK USED IN VODAFONE 4K OTT SET-TOP-BOXES

The WIZTIVIFRAMEWORK solution for the development of the User Interface has been integrated into the hybrid OTT and DVB – T/C Set-Top-Box, being deployed by Vodafone Group in Spain and Italy.

In addition to live TV, Vodafone end-users can benefit from an enhanced user experience to access VOD and Catchup TV. Search & recommendation features allow access to favourite content, even content from 3rd Party apps like Netflix.

The development and the integration of the UI components into Vodafone’s environment were fully managed by Wiztivi’s teams, in accordance with Vodafone’s requirements. Wiztivi’s Developers take the best out of the Set-Top-Box performance in order to create the finest user experience and improve the animations of the service. Thanks to Wiztivi’s experts, transitions were also optimised to deliver the feeling of an ongoing experience that would match with Vodafone’s expectations.

Wiztivi also managed the integration of the backend technology in order for Vodafone to improve the consistency across the targeted market. To achieve this, Wiztivi’s developers used the WIZTIVIFRAMEWORK solution to deliver one common code to both countries. The optimised single base of development that is common to each model of this Set-Top-Box then recognises the country in which the Set-Top-Box is located to adapt the content available. As such, Vodafone’s end users benefit from a unified experience.
