Here, you will find answers to operators’ and users’ frequently asked questions.
What is the difference between Android TV and AOSP?
In contrast to AOSP, Android TV targets only set-top boxes, media players, and Smart TVs. This OS features Google Assistant, Chromecast built-in, YouTube support, and has access to Google Play Store’s extensive catalog of apps and games.
To release an Android TV device, manufacturers should meet Google’s content protection, firmware, update, and hardware requirements. Operators can thus rest assured that their devices will work as advertised and get updates in time.
What benefits does Android TV carry for operators?
With Android TV, even local operators can offer their subscribers a modern user experience complete with voice search, app store, personalized recommendations, and Chromecast built-in.
We cover Android TV’s features in more detail in our Infomir Academy course, for operators.
How do I integrate MAG500A with my middleware?
If your solution lacks support for Android TV, you will have to invest in its integration or look for an alternative.
Is user data protected?
Android TV’s security is guaranteed by one of the largest IT companies in the world. Google thoroughly tests the devices and releases security patches for vendors to integrate them into their update images.
Which apps are pre-installed on MAG500A?
Infomir’s apps are as follows: Ministra Player, a Ministra TV platform client; MAGic Files, a file explorer; MAGic Player, a video player; MAGic Browser, a web browser; and MAGic Audio, a music player.
Can MAG500A be integrated with third-party middleware and CAS/DRM?
