Problem

The Smart TV area is one of the most dynamic: competencies are getting outdated, technologies are developing quickly. That is why the industry seeks narrow expertise and  developers with versatile qualifications.

Explore our case studies

We face and solve unique business challenges for both world’s leading and niche companies. Our long-standing experience in Smart TV application development lets us match each customer’s project and bring it to success on the world and local markets. We prove it below.

Android apps
Android media apps
Commissioned by our clients worldwide, we developed apps to browse TV channels, view films and EPG, purchase videos via local payment systems. The key features: Android 4x-11, IPTV channels, EPG, VOD. The software platforms work directly from DVB-IP STBs and don’t require a middleware server connection.
Smart TV apps
Smart TV apps for Tizen/webOS
We developed several web apps for Tizen and webOS, mobile operating systems released by Samsung LG respectively. Also, our software engineers have been working on AmigoTV, an interactive digital TV platform with HD broadcasting via the Internet. It supports catch up, rewind, time-shift, start over, and record functions. It is now available on the Samsung and LG Content Stores, Google Play and the App Store.
AI for STBs
In-video shopping AI for STBs
We helped the Oyper startup create an AI solution for scanning clothes and other items within video streams. Our team developed an app for Android and Java-based set-top boxes with Smart TV. The app finds links to online outlets so that users can buy clothes from their videos in a few clicks. We have also launched a mobile app for covering more video content on social networks.
TV remote app
Smartphone as a remote control
In this project, the task was to develop an Android application that turns a smartphone or a tablet into a remote control and sends signals to the user’s TV. Those signals are changing the channel, adjusting the volume, or choosing a broadcasting format.
IPTV delivery
IPTV delivery apps
An app with multi-screen works with up to five user devices within a single account: set-top boxes, PCs, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. It delivers video broadcasting to any device and saves the viewing position when switching to another screen. Also, the app supports personal video recording (PVR), watch-later function, smart TV guide, and parental control. Available for Android and iOS.
