Paris, 13th Septemer 2019 – The launch of the Vbox 4K in Portugal marks a new milestone in the successful collaboration between Vodafone and Wiztivi. Already in use in Spain, Italy and Greece, the brand-new VTV User Interface, fully developed by Wiztivi, is now available in Portugal.
The VBox 4K UI, powered by the Wiztivi framework
The Wiztivi framework solution, used in the development of the UI, has been implemented into the OTT set-top box deployed by Vodafone Group in Portugal. Completely designed in-house, the Wiztivi framework is a full development environment used to deliver a compelling and optimized user interface based on one code for multiple devices. It reduces the time to market and allows operators to offer their subscribers a unique and unified user experience.
New features developed by Wiztivi for Vodafone
Vodafone customers enjoy an enhanced user experience that allows access to Live, VOD, Catchup and third party app services. Personalised Search and Recommendation features allow access to the content the user is most interested in, at any given moment. Powered by AI, the VBox 4k is the first in Portugal that allows customers to find content simply by speaking to the TV. Children now also have their dedicated place with a safe Kids area, which can be customized for each individual child with their favourite characters.
“Vodafone places the user experience at the core of our service, bringing AI powered capabilities that allow users to speak with the TV, as well as a brand new interface dedicated to helping kids find their favourite content”, said Miguel Rodrigues, Head of TV Development at Vodafone Global.
