Telecom Lead India: Exset, a UK-based Broadcast Technology and Solutions company, has selected Hyundai Digital Technology (HDT), a manufacturer of digital set-top boxes in Korea, as its STB strategic partner.
With cable digitization gaining momentum across the world, the partnership provides significant opportunity to both companies.
HDT currently provides MPEG4 Set-Top-Box service (STBs) for One TV, the first nationwide digital terrestrial TV platform service in Cambodia. Cambodian televisions are expected to switch to Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial (DVB-T) in 2015.
“We are delighted to have Exset and HDT as partners for our digital terrestrial TV platform,” said Jonas Hastnig, CTO of One TV. “The robustness of HDT STB and Exset’s security coupled with Value Added Services on Exset’s Middleware will ensure that our customers enjoyed a new digital experience”.
“HDT’s technical team’s competence during the integration process resulted in a fast turnaround and the STB was integrated timely for the launch of the One TV service,” said Mr. Alex Borland, CEO of Exset.
Exset, a UK-based Broadcast Technology and Solutions company, was founded in 2011 with offices in The Netherlands, Estonia, Russia, New Delhi and Singapore.
“Exset is delighted to extend its philosophy of ‘Digitization is Monetization’ through its award winning DMS to Cambodia. A proven STB partner like HDT helps us go all the way in taking our DMS to the operator and finally to the consumer,” said Rahul Nehra- Global head of Sales & Marketing, Exset.
