Let your subscribers control their TV with their mobile phone and cast content to the big screen with just one tap.

FAQ

Here, you will find answers to operators’ and users’ frequently asked questions.

What is the difference between Android TV and AOSP?
AOSP (Android Open Source Project) is an open-source operating system for smartphones, smartwatches, TVs, set-top boxes, and other devices. Although it lets manufacturers add ad-hoc functionality, this platform has no access to Google services.

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?
The Android TV platform is compatible with most modern middleware. If your solution has a client app for Android TV, all you need to do is install it on MAG500A.

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?
All the user account, purchase, and credit card data are 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?
MAG500A comes pre-loaded with Google’s and Infomir’s apps. The former include YouTube, Google Play Store, Live Channels, and Google Play Movies.

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?
MAG500A supports only Widevine L1 and Microsoft PlayReady. If you need other CAS/DRM or customizations, Android TV Operator Tier would be your best bet for its much broader customization possibilities.
Where is MAG500A made?
MAG500A is designed and assembled in Odesa (Ukraine), where Infomir’s headquarters are located.
