Video content service providers and their consumers recognize the compelling and natural use cases for voice interaction with the set-top box. Today, we are introducing qualified solutions for set-top boxes (STBs) with Alexa built-in from AVS Systems Integrators (SIs) ARRIS, Cisco Infinite Video Platform, DiscVision, and Technicolor.
The first solutions for the STB category, from four new AVS Systems Integrators, enable device makers to leverage more complete designs that are already pre-integrated with the Alexa Voice Service:
“Set-top boxes provide a seamless way to integrate Alexa into the television experience in many homes,” said Priya Abani, Director of Amazon Alexa. “These new AVS systems integrators are expected to increase the speed at which developers can launch new video devices with Alexa built-in, and broaden the variety of devices customers can use to interact with Alexa.”
