Your Partner for Software Solutions for TV Devices
Our software components and solutions are the building blocks for our customer’s set-top box and TV products. Besides these software parts, we see us as a partner for our customers during the whole product development process. We are open for your specific requirements and features and understand the clear wish for product differentiation in this market.
We are a highly qualified and competitive software engineering team based in Munich and Brasov (Romania). Our team has been working together successfully for many years. With our long-term experience in the area of TV solutions, UX design and GUI development, we are able to offer you services in different areas of software development.
With our background in consumer electronics for three decades, we have been involved in many different customer projects. Sometimes we contribute single software components like Teletext, Subtitle Decoder, HbbTV or HLS player. Sometimes we contribute our software solutions like our Inaris DVB/IPTV Solution, which utilises several of our components. In other projects, we provide whole applications based on TVolution or LiveOn TV as a starting base.
Besides the technological building blocks, our core engineering team can realise customer-specific adaptations and help in integrating our software components in your product. For a few years, our offering has been extended to taking further responsibility for the whole product development, product launch, maintenance, monitoring including also backend topics. In the best way, this can be seen in the current projects with our partners SES launching HD Television in Ghana and Quickline with their Android UHD TV Box.
We contributed our expertise in project management in numerous successful projects and partnerships. We are familiar with widely used agile methods like Scrum and SAFE, which enable short iterative development steps and allow high flexibility in implementations.
All phases of the project lifecycle are well-known: from planning (including requirements analysis and risk management) through implementation and validation to deployment and maintenance.
With clear communication and a Single Point of Contact (SPoC), we create transparency for the customer and partners.
Software Design & Consulting
Based on our many years of experience in the area of software development for embedded systems, we are well prepared to support our customers in the area of software design. Our customers use our software components and solutions in their products. This software will be integrated into and supplements our customer’s own software. We can give consultancy of how this can be achieved in the best way to fit their requirements.
You want to differentiate your product in the market and have new creative ideas never seen before? Ready-made software may not always fulfil all the requested features. In this case, we analyse together with you the new requirements and find a creative solution. By using a structured and agile process, together as a team, the requirements will be analysed and the software architecture be defined. We support you with the specification of new interfaces, adapt our software to your needs, and also implement new software components.
To ensure excellent software quality, we use well-defined development processes which are based on modern and established frameworks. Using agile methodologies – like Scrum or Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) – allows flexibility in projects, so that the end goal is moldable and becomes more clearly defined during the project. This enables efficient and easy adaptation in changing conditions and prerequisites.
Monitoring & Analytics
Whether you want to measure the stability, the performance, or the usage of a device: remote monitoring provides the required information. You can get access to detailed metrics and evaluations that allow you to improve the product and to increase the user experience.
We use professional cloud-based environments such as Google’s Pub/Sub, BigQuery database for data collection and Data Studio and Splunk for data analysis.
We use these environments for embedded devices – regardless of the operating system used: Linux or Android, but also for RTOS. Even for non-connected devices, we developed a companion device that establishes the data transfer.
- The analytics data is sent in real-time to the cloud
- Allows remote investigation and analysis of errors in the field
- Allows validation of Key Performance Indicators (KPI)
- Comparison of KPI’s for different releases possible
- Collect information about the usage of specific features
- Allows improving user experience and service offering based on usage monitoring
Studies & Research
Our world continues to develop at a rapid pace. Many new technologies are emerging and replacing outdated ones. It is an integral part of our work to follow these new developments and decide which direction to take.
In order to keep our finger on the pulse of the times, we participate in research projects, e.g. with the Fraunhofer Institute, to build up an understanding of new developments but also to actively participate in these developments. We also invest in the study of new basic technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), which have universal implications for our entire life.
This assessment and evaluation for new developments is not only the basis for our own further development but also forms the basis for advising our customers on which technologies are best suited for their products in order to also be successful in the future.
The best and most successful products embody seamless, meaningful and relevant user experiences. Our experts guide and support you through the whole UX design process in order to achieve a top-notch user experience for your products.
The basis for implementing a successful graphical user interface (GUI) is a passionate development team that has a professional background in the latest GUI technologies. We are the perfect partner supporting you with project consulting, architecture and UX design, scalable up to full GUI development.
