ABOX42 showcasing latest STB at CES
The current CES exhibition in Las Vegas finds ABOX42 highlighting its new ‘M12’ IPTV and OTT STB. The M12 enables service providers to deliver new IP-based TV content and services, upgrade existing customers, and create new business models. The M12 is powered by Broadcom Corporation’s BCM7231 IP STB platform and delivers a full suite of Internet-based frameworks and applications to support the delivery of OTT content and services.
M12 complements ABOX42’s IP OTT platform B12 at the high-end as a fully compatible alternative depending on special applications and higher requirements. It also enables possible upgrades from B12 to M12 without the need for application adaptions.
Broadcom’s BCM7231 platform powers ABOX42´s M12 boxes to enable operators to cost-effectively expand advanced HDTV interactive digital and IPTV services such as IPTV, networked DVR and browser-based applications. M12 was designed for fast-moving OTT providers, Internet companies and cable operators who wish to roll out interactive services and new business models based on the latest Internet technologies.
Stuart Thomson, senior director of marketing, consumer electronics at Broadcom, comments: “As the momentum to deploy OTT & IPTV intensifies throughout the world, we are pleased to partner with ABOX42 to enable service providers to quickly deploy new services based on our latest technologies. This is a significant milestone in the accelerated development and quick deployment of high performance IP OTT set-top boxes worldwide.”

The M12 platform is the ideal solution for all OTT companies, which do want to have their own STB product without any worry about technology and to avoid project complexity at all. Our platform is retail- and end-user-proven and extremely easy to use.”
