16th  November 2017 – Geneva, Switzerland: ADB, a leading provider of solutions and services for multimedia convergence, has today announced that the advanced quadruple-play cable operator, Melita, has chosen ADB to implement the commercial launch of its TV service.  Melita will benefit from ADB’s vast experience in the STB market together with innovative applications applied through RDK middleware.

This new customer relationship aims to quickly deploy a variety of new RDK based services which will enhance Melita’s offering to its customer base. The RDK enabled deployment radically speeds up time to market and creates a competitive, flexible and attractive solution.

Melita uses the innovative ADB 1750CF HD HEVC STB with Wifi, and four tuners, providing cutting edge technology.

“Thanks to ADB’s middleware and STB expertise, we are able to provide our customers with innovative services and benefits. The ADB STB with its RDK 2.x middleware solution enables Melita customers to enjoy a combination of interactive services such as 7 days catch-up, video on demand and recordings in cloud. It also allows multiple recordings at any one time, and the ability to “split the screen” and watch 2 programmes simultaneously”, said Simon Poljsak, Product Manager at Melita.

‘The effectual middleware performance, simplicity of use and the low energy consumption of the ADB STB are some of the reasons why Melita decided to work with ADB – We are really proud to count Melita amongst our customers’ said Lennart Broers, SVP Sales Western Europe.
