Foxtel will continue its partnership with US-based CommScope and bring The New Foxtel Experience across Australia.
The New Foxtel Experience will leverage CommScope’s technology to cater for the on-demand market as well as Netflix for subscribers with Foxtel’s iQ4 set-top box. The iQ4 set-top box will be capable to bring all the experiences to the ease of clicks.
CommScope’s Professional Services group worked with Foxtel to deliver the iQ4’s full-stack software platform, which integrates to multiple back-office systems to provide a seamless broadcast and IP connected user experience. The iQ4 combines broadcast satellite and IP capabilities in a single, powerful device capable of delivering 4K broadcast resolution, 802.11ac Wi-Fi®, and a 1TB hard-drive—allowing subscribers to watch what they want, when they want, the way it was meant to be watched.
Steve McCaffery, senior vice president of Service Providers, International, CommScope said “Our work with Foxtel highlights our continued leadership and combined expertise in professional services and software integration. We are setting a new standard for the television experience by combining the latest technology in support of the growing number of video formats that consumers enjoy. Foxtel’s new iQ4 user interface brings it all together in a single, seamless experience, and we’re delighted by its positive reception in Australia.”
