Paris (France) & London (UK): Technicolor, worldwide technology leader in the media and entertainment sector, today announced details of its presence at CommunicAsia 2014 exhibition and conference (June 17-20, Singapore). Visitors to Technicolor’s showroom can experience a broad range of technologies designed to help communications operators deliver compelling 4K, smart life and enhanced Wi-Fi services.
“We’re committed to helping service providers create amazing immersive viewing experiences, combined with revolutionary smart home capabilities and enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity,” said Michel Rahier, President Connected Home at Technicolor. “Each of these innovations is designed to create clear differentiation in services offered to end users.”
Immersive 4K experiences
On show in Asia for the first time will be Technicolor’s 4Kp60 set-top box, capable of delivering 60 frames per second. Available for both Cable and Satellite networks, Technicolor is gearing up to deliver the most immersive 4K experience. This industry first follows the company’s demonstration of the first 4K/UHD set-top box in 2013.
Technicolor recently signalled its market leadership in 4K in Asia by signing the industry’s first major 4K set top box deal with India’s leading direct to home (DTH) service provider TATA SKY.
Reducing Wi-Fi support costs and setting up low-cost mobile hotspots
As consumers connect more devices to home Wi-Fi networks, connectivity issues can arise which create customer support expense for operators as well as potentially increasing consumer churn. Technicolor will showcase Wi-Fi Doctor, an Android app developed on Qeo that enables consumers to troubleshoot issues easily themselves, as well as providing more detailed diagnostic information when they call through to helpdesks.
Also on show at CommunicAsia will be other Wi-Fi solutions that offer mobile Wi-Fi to subscribers with minimal infrastructure investment, as well as advanced .11ac set-top boxes and gateways which provide 5GHz Wi-Fi solution for multi-screen video streaming throughout the home.
Smart life and the internet of things
Last year at CommunicAsia, Technicolor presented Qeo, its open source software to bridge ecosystems and interconnect devices and applications of all brands in the “internet of things”, to create true smart life services. This year, Technicolor will demonstrate a brand new approach that brings Qeo from enabling smart home to supporting a smarter digital life.
