Altice France uses Sagemcom Video Soundbox for SFR Box 8

Wednesday 11 September 2019 | 10:56 CET | News

Altice France has relied on the expertise of equipment maker Sagemcom for its new premium set-top box, launched on 20 August. Co-developed with Altice Labs, SFR Box 8 uses components from Sagemcom’s Video Soundbox product range, which was created to meet growing demand for immersive features such as voice commands and Dolby Atmos compatibility, the supplier said.

Alongside Sagemcom, user experience specialist Wiztivi has collaborated with Altice on the new TV interface launched on SFR Box 8, featuring voice-controlled commands and a recommendation engine.

The user interface is based on Wiztivi’s recently launched Timeless Universe product, which also offers innovative features such as resume playback on compatible Android and iOS devices. It is now available on SFR TV mobile and web applications to support the operator’s multi-screen approach.
