Fraunhofer FOKUS integrates HbbTV in Zattoo’s Android TV set-top box
News from Dec. 03, 2020
In cooperation with Zattoo, Fraunhofer FOKUS developed a concept and architecture for enabling HbbTV on Zattoo’s Android TV Operator set-top boxes. As a result, an HbbTV library for Android was developed and integrated in the Zattoo Android TV App. This is one of the first such implementations of HbbTV into an Android TV App.
Zattoo will add HbbTV to its latest Android TV Operator Tier certified 4K/UHD set-top box. The implementation by Zattoo and Fraunhofer FOKUS is one of the first such integrations of HbbTV into a TV service centric Android TV application. With this standardized platform, Zattoo can offer access to additional content services offered by broadcasters in a quick and efficient manner. The design, hosting, delivery and surfacing of content is up to the broadcasters. Among the first customers are German ADSL provider 1&1, Swiss telco Azienda Multiservizi Bellinzona (AMB) and Swiss network operator senseLAN.
