Leading the Media Environment through Smart Set-Top Box and Smart Platform


Emergence of Smart Technology Driving Changes in the Broadcasting and Media Environment
The emergence of smart technology is causing tectonic changes in how content is delivered in the broadcasting and media industry. Following the introduction of smart TV services, cable TV and IPTV service providers, which offer a greater range of content to compete with network broadcasters, are now under pressure to meet the increasing needs of users with more features and stronger content offerings.

LG CNS Commercialized the World’s First Smart Set-top Box
LG CNS succeeded in commercializing the world’s first smart set-top box for paid TV services. With the smart set-top box, which is expected to revolutionize device functions and media content delivery system, broadcasters are now able to support OTT (Over The Top), self-streaming, and web browsing in addition to VOD service on Eco System, a set-top box-based open platform.
