Vidmind adds KAONMEDIA to its Set Top Box offerings

Vidmind has signed an agreement with KAONMEDIA, a world market leader in the development and manufacturing of Digital Connectivity devices, to start deploying KAONMEDIA’s Set Top Boxes (STB).

Under the terms of the agreement, Vidmind can now offer KAONMEDIA’s wide range of STBs from entry-level DTA boxes, hybrid PVR ready boxes to high-end video gateways enabling users to experience Multi-Screen TV experiences in home.

Vidmind has already deployed KAONMEDIA’s and has integrated its STB as part of the recently won tender to provide Kyivstar with Vidmind’s innovative  Over-The-Top (OTT) platform for a new pay television service.

“The deal with KAONMEDIA is a significant step for us as it enables Vidimind to expend our hardware offerings with products from one of the leading global STB players,” said Oded Nachshon VP R&D at Vidmind. “With the flexibility offered by Vidmind’s platform, we have managed to make all the required changed quickly and easily and are now ready to start working with operators using KAONMEDIA STB.”

Vidmind had previously signed a similar agreement with Hisense, one of China’s leading TV and STB brands. With the addition of KAONMEDIA, Vidmind is well positioned to further expand its global presence and help TV operators around the world launch a full-blown over the top (OTT) Pay-TV service.

Vidmind is currently working on expanding its offering further and add other STB brand names.

KAONMEDIA is a world market leader in the development and manufacturing of digital connectivity devices and residential gateways for Pay-TV operators, broadband operators and Telcos. The Korea-based company provides digital broadcasting solutions to more than 120 operators in 80 countries.
