THE LATEST IN TV TECHNOLOGY – JULY 2015

Published July 1st, 2015

Microsoft is hard at work on Windows 10, although no date has been shared yet for when the Xbox One will move to the Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform base. Sony’s PlayStation 4 meanwhile is doing quite well, selling more than 22 million units.

Both Sony and Philips are in the midst of rolling out their Android TV devices. Sharp, which also has Android TV devices, quite unexpectedly announced it will run Roku on some other models. Panasonic meanwhile decided to go for Firefox OS this year.

Apple is still very silent about Apple TV, although there are many hints and rumors indicating an upcoming public SDK. Google was also not very vocal about Android TV and Chromecast at Google I/O, with only minor software updates being announced.

We’re currently hiring for several positions. Check out our careers page if you are interested or know somebody who might be! To keep up to date with TV technology news on a weekly basis, follow my personal blog.

COUNTDOWN TO IBC 2015

The 24i team is in full preparation for the IBC Show hosted in our hometown, Amsterdam. It’s become an exciting tradition for us to introduce new and innovative products at this show. Last year, we launched our TV Everywhere solution, the 'Smart Operator'. This year we’ll be showcasing our RTL Videoland app - the first and only app that can live stream 4K/UHD content to Smart TV’s; plus an assortment of 24i’s most recent app developments. Another tradition is our famous Happy Hour featuring cold beer and some traditional Dutch “bitterballen” every day, starting at 16.00 hrs at our booth L05 in Hall 14 (Content Everywhere). If you’d like to schedule a meeting or demo with one of our team members, please contact Chantal Favre or simply book us here. We look forward to seeing you at IBC2015!
