DigiCAP, the solution provider of ATSC 3.0 headend and the manufacturer of ATSC home gateway devices, and iWedia, part of Zappware Entertainment Group International (ZEGI) and the provider of world-class software solutions for connected TV devices, today announced their collaboration to create the first ATSC 3.0-Hybrid HDMI dongle of its kind. The solution, named AirCaster, will enable an integrated user experience between NextGen TV and OTT, and bring interactivity to consumers with TV sets, helping accelerate the adoption of ATSC 3.0 in the United States.
The collaboration brings together the unparalleled expertise and experience of DigiCAP for hardware and iWedia for software, to deliver an ATSC 3.0 enabled device that is more economic and less intrusive than a set-top box (STB) as it plugs in directly behind the TV. Consumers who purchase AirCaster will be able to download OTT streaming application without having to buy set-top boxes, allowing them to “cut the cord” and choose the services they want. Depending on the capabilities of their TV sets, they will also benefit from the higher picture and audio quality, and interactivity available through ATSC 3.0.
