NOS, the Portuguese broadband and TV service provider, has selected the ZD4500 set-top from ARRIS for its new 4K television service, which was introduced earlier this month. The new service provides access to 4K movies and sports broadcasts as well as other programming. The set-top box supports HEVC compression.
The ZD4500 set-top box integrates with a new RDK 2.1-based application framework from Espial and NOS’s new immersive user interface. This is said to be the first RDK-based 4K platform launch in Europe.
“ARRIS is our long-term, strategic partner for delivering new broadband and TV services in Portugal, and brings leadership in RDK, 4K and advanced DOCSIS solutions to our latest, transformative service,” Pedro Bandeira, Development Director at NOS says. “For the transition to 4K video, we selected ARRIS’s HEVC set-tops to unite our new application framework and user interface and bring our subscribers the future of TV. ARRIS has delivered an exceptional level of support to ensure the success of our 4K service launch.”
