SmartLabs LLC offers service delivery platforms for interactive digital television (IPTV, DVB, hybrid, satellite, Internet TV), innovative client applications and revolutionary fast and animated user interfaces for STBs to IPTV and digital TV Service Providers.
SmartLabs’ key platform – SmartTUBE SDP – a converged service delivery platform for interactive television over fixed (IPTV, DVB, hybrid) and wireless (DVB-H, 3G, Wi-Fi, WiMax, etc.) networks with TV broadcasting, PPV, PVR/nPVR, VoD/nVoD, IM, and other services.
SmartTUBE UI client applications are based on a popular animation and graphical engine and supports a wide range of client devices (STBs, mobile phones, media centers, etc.) and is integrated into SmartLabs client application framework – a powerful development environment which has all typical TV user interface objects (windows, menus, lists, etc.), animation templates (motions, movements, object behaviors, etc.) as well as typical client-server interoperability mechanisms (i.e., EPG and VoD content data exchange, available services, etc.). Once created, the UI might be easily transferred to different end-point devices. It allows to move UIs to any new device within one technology (say, IPTV), and it also allows to build hybrid solutions (IPTV, DVB, 3G, Wi-Fi, etc.) assuming that subscribers will use the same interface experience regardless ways they have to access services.
