|(openPR) - With immediate effect, the TRIAX Group, a leading international provider of digital radio reception technology, and FOXXUM, an international supplier of portal solutions, content aggregation and TV-Apps development, are working together in even closer collaboration on the development of new hybrid digital receivers for the European market. FOXXUM has been given the order of developing the TRIAX Smart TV portal with attractive content and realizing its integration into Triax end devices. With Triax, the technology company FOXXUM is expanding the European range of its Smart TV portal solution by a further key brand. The first devices of this generation were already presented to trade specialists at the ANGA Cable 2012.
The HDTV satellite receiver TRIAX S-150 Hybrid enables reception of all free-to-air TV programs via satellite. The HDTV cable variant TRIAX C-150 Hybrid, which is additionally equipped with a CI+ interface, can be used in many German cable networks. With the TRIAX IP-100, a pure IP receiver without an additional tuner, owners of older TV sets can extend them quite easily by Smart TV functionality. The three devices are commercially available from autumn 2012.
“For the development of our future reception solutions we are placing a very clear emphasis on the area of Smart TV, and are delighted about the close cooperation with FOXXUM. In our eyes the company’s strengths have been confirmed by its reliability and speed in realizing the TRIAX Smart TV portal - and what is more: From the very start we were highly impressed by the target-oriented business approach, the concept of an attractive user experience as a basis for high traffic, the added values expected by viewers these days, and the shrewd differentiation strategies which set the company apart from its competitors”, explains Jochen Kummerer, Group Product Manager Receivers of the TRIAX Group.
“The cooperation between TRIAX and FOXXUM is a quintessential win-win situation. TRIAX extends its innovative product range in the area of digital receivers with our Smart TV portal solution optimized for first-class viewing entertainment and thereby gains a further strong argument for its hybrid products. At the same time we extend the technical reach for our partners from the content area by an additional brand which is already established in Europe, thus further increasing the access rates”, comments Ronny Lutzi, CEO at FOXXUM.
