LAS VEGAS — Jan. 7, 2024 — Broadcast technology innovators, BitRouter and Geniatech today announced the availability of a new line of NEXTGEN TV televisions that can range up to 85 inches in panel size. These TVs will initially be available as a 13-inch portable tablet TV and a 15-inch conventional TV with stand. Both TVs will feature a touch screen and remote-controlled interfaces. The TVs will be certified to the NEXTGEN TV logo standard, and carry certifications for ATSC 3.0 Security Authority (A3SA) content security, Dolby® MS12 Multistream Decoder v2, and Dolby AC-4 audio compression.
These TVs are based on Geniatech’s ATSC3 TV platform and BitRouter’s ATSC3pak software running on the Android™ 11 open-source platform. The TVs will be marketed as the ZapperBox T1 model and will be made available for OEM branding and customization. These TVs will feature the unique ability to record programs on external flash storage. In an industry first, both the ZapperBox T1 television and M1 DVR are based on the same source code and user experience, resulting in the unprecedented blending of the TV and the set-top box,
Event visitors can see the TVs and meet with Geniatech in booth 52355 at the Venetian expo hall at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), taking place January 9-12 in Las Vegas. The ZapperBox T1 TVs are expected to be available by the end of the second quarter of 2024.
