Dune HD, award-winning manufacturer of Full HD media players and connected set-top boxes for home users and operators, today announced that its innovative Dune HD Connect has won “Best TV Consumer Device” at the seventh annual TV Connect Awards. As the world’s first StickSTB™ Full HD set top box media player, the Dune HD Connect simply plugs into a subscriber’s TV HDMI port to enable IPTV, OTT and digital content services on any TV.
Dune HD pioneered the StickSTB product format, designed to appeal to both operators and consumers by packing maximum video processing power and connectivity into the most compact form factor. Measuring just 1"x1 3/8", the Dune HD Connect StickSTB makes it simple for operators to deploy streaming services by providing the most compact means of OTT and IPTV content delivery possible, along with opening up new business models.
Featuring Full HD 1080p, HDMI 1.4 and built-in Wi-Fi, Ethernet and future digital broadcast tuner options, the Dune HD Connect sets a new standard in small size and high performance. With a micro SD slot, AV outputs and two USB ports squeezed into a compact form factor, the Dune HD Connect is easily the smartest and most connected TV adaptor in its class.
The Dune HD Connect is easy to install for subscribers and cost-effective for operators to deploy and support. Due to its compact size, the Dune HD Connect is the first CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) that may be shipped by standard mail, removing the need for specialized home installation service trucks. Installation takes only a few minutes, with subscribers simply plugging the device into an HDMI port on their TV and connecting to their existing Wi-Fi or Ethernet network. Delivered with operator-specific OTT and IPTV streaming services already integrated, subscribers benefit from immediate access to popular and premium content without needing specialist technical support or installation.
“Dune HD has built a reputation for innovation that has been recognized by winning awards across the globe,” said Konstantin Dyshlevoy, CEO, Dune HD. “This latest recognition from the prestigious TV Connect Awards demonstrates both our engineering excellence and focus on helping operators effectively monetize their content delivery. The Dune HD Connect provides a Smart TV experience at a fraction of the cost of other options, opening up new revenue streams to operators by upgrading the user experience for subscribers.”
The TV Connect Awards recognize, reward and celebrate innovation, excellence and achievement in the Connected Entertainment industry. Held alongside the TV Connect conference, the honors were presented at a ceremony in London March 20, 2013. The Dune HD Connect competed in the category for “Best TV Consumer Device” against products from Amino Technologies, Qualcomm Atheros, NAGRA and Ruwido.
