Target devices

  • Hybrid OTT and DVB – T/C Set-Top-Box

02. Challenges

The modularity of the WIZTIVIFRAMEWORK has been used to adapt the UI based on constraints in each country it has been deployed so far.

Technical expertise

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.

UX Consistency

Wiztivi managed too the integration of 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. Vodafone’s end users benefit from a unified experience.
