A digital TV set top box is now in almost every home in the UK, using signal source such as Ethernet cable, satellite dish, coax cable, phone line or an ordinary UHF antenna. Notably, the content could be any or all of video, audio, Internet web pages, interactive video games, all running over wireless home networks. Satellite based services also require specific external receiver hardware, so the use of set-top boxes of various formats has never completely disappeared as they can also enhance source signal quality.
Obviously, this type of hardware and technology relies heavily on the software that is embedded in the various digital TV set top box systems (or middleware) that bring the content of home networks and all this entertainment to the end users.
For many years the software engineers at Applied Software Engineering have been building their digital TV set top box software expertise, working with industry leaders such as Pace and Sky, so that we can boast our industry leading, digital TV and set top box software development outsourcing offer as one of the best in the UK and overseas.
