The Croatian incumbent Hrvatski Telekom (HT) has deployed Zenterio OS software on subscribers’ set-top boxes used to receive the IPTV service MAXtv.The deployment is part of a comprehensive project by Deutsche Telekom, HT’s majority owner, to harmonise the software programmes in Slovakia, Germany, Hungary, Greece, Romania, and Croatia.
Commenting on the development, Goran Car, director of core network & service application platforms sector at HT, said: “Over the last several years, the television experience has become much more personalised and intuitive, making it an absolute requirement to provide on-demand content on every screen. To meet the complex market demands, we are focused on client software independence and harmonisation.
“Zenterio OS is central to our strategy, providing us with a rock-solid solution that offers more control over client devices, in addition to optimising hardware sourcing; reducing backend integration time; and increasing our flexibility and reusability of hardware, software features, and software. This launch is a major milestone for Zenterio, HT, and the DT Group.”
Jörgen Nilsson, CEO of Zenterio, added: “We’re proud to be collaborating with Hrvatski Telekom in Croatia and the Deutsche Telekom Group, one of the largest multinational operators in Europe, on this extensive project.
“As operators around the world look to take back control of the user interface and drive better TV experiences, this deployment is a great example of how Zenterio OS enables increased flexibility, reliability, software independence, and harmonisation.”
