Zurich (12/06/2018) ZATTOO is showcasing 4K / UHD at ANGA COM, beginning today in Cologne, at its own booth in Hall 8 / R9. The Swiss telecommunications provider Salt will be the first B2B customer to offer 4K / UHD on the Apple TV 4K Box.
Leading telecommunications provider Salt launched its own landline network product in 2018, and introduced a disruptive TV solution in Switzerland with Apple and ZATTOO. The TV product’s key component is the Apple TV 4K Box, which is being used with operator login for the first time outside the USA.
Andreas Schoenenberger, Salt's Chief Executive Officer, is convinced: “we have introduced a pioneering TV solution under our own brand, which we will continue to develop with our partner ZATTOO. The launch of 4K / UHD is an important step in this ongoing development.”
Consumer streaming devices such as Apple TV but also Fire TV are playing an increasingly important role for network operators. For example, the leading German network operator 1&1 Telecom AG - also a client of ZATTOO - fully supported Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV along with the “classic” set-top box right from the start with its recently-launched TV service. The background: end customers are wanting to watch TV on these kinds of devices more and more - either as a second device or as the main device. This is the case, for example, for Salt in Switzerland.
Gernot Jaeger, the chief officer of B2B TV Solutions at ZATTOO confirms: “we are delighted to be showcasing more trend-setting features of our TV-as-a-Service LIVE at ANGA COM and thus continuing to set important trends in the very dynamic TV market.”
The White Label IPTV solution from ZATTOO allows network operators to roll out a complete IPTV product, or also a Hybrid Cable IP product under their own brand and with their own product profile – without having to invest in expensive software or hardware components. With the complete operation of the platform and the TV service by ZATTOO, network operators benefit from continual updates and developments and are able to become and remain as competitive as their national and international competitors.
