ZTE launches smart 4-core OTT set-top box B760H
Shenzhen, China, 27th February 2015– ZTE Corporation, a leading provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, has announced the global launch of its smart 4-core OTT set-top box (STB) 760H.
The B760H STB is configured with a 4-core processor, and runs on Android 4.4. It supports the “IPTV+OTT” function and service, which can provide multiple functions and applications such as multi-screen interaction, family monitoring, 3D games and shopping to generate an entertaining experience for the entire family.
The B760H supports 2.4G/5G WiFi connection, allowing it to take advantage of 5G WiFi connections to facilitate a smoother user experience. At present the majority of devices, including mobile devices, handsets, tablets, notebooks, and hand-held games consoles run on the 2.4GHz frequency band of WiFi connections. This causes a lot of competition and interference between devices, affecting the application quality. However, this interference can be reduced through connecting to 5G WiFi which is seldom used, significantly improving the signal quality.
In comparison to existing traditional HD network STBs, the B760H supports hard coding visual communication, which possesses several advantages in terms of HD technology. The hard coding reduces the requirement for computing which significantly lessens the burden on the CPU. When the HD image is processed the hard coding enables HD visual communication.
The B760H has a built-in Bluetooth 4.0 module so that the STB possesses full compatibility with Bluetooth technology. In the future, more IOT devices will use Bluetooth 4.0 which will establish Bluetooth as an important carrier of the smart family service.
Fang Hui, VP of ZTE, said, “ZTE has launched an innovative product, getting in on the ground floor of dual-module STB intelligence. Despite the B760H’s intelligent functions, it is not complicated to use. Users can establish the cable/wireless connection between the STB and their TV by using the remote control. In addition, their mobile phone or tablet can be used as a second remote control so that the user can operate the screen jilting function and push their audio/video programs to the TV simply by sliding his/her finger towards the screen.”
ZTE has been dedicated to the R&D of IP terminals for several years. It produced the full series IPTV and OTT STB products and its applications are regarded as meeting the highest global standards.
