SAN JOSE, Calif. , Nov. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synaptics® Incorporated (NASDAQ: SYNA), the leading developer of human interface solutions, along with Swisscom, the market leader in Switzerland for digital television services, today announced co-development of the new Swisscom Entertainment OS 4 set-top-box (STB), now available to its over 1.5 million subscribers. The new Swisscom TV Entertainment OS 4 STB framework is built upon Synaptics’ far-field voice (FFV) IPTV reference design which includes the high-performance Quad-Core VideoSmart® multimedia processor with integrated FFV processing and custom wake word to support Swisscom’s proprietary assistant. Rounding out the comprehensive reference design is a high dynamic range stereo microphone analog-to-digital converter (ADC), a digital-to-analog converter (DAC), and an audio amplifier which powers the internal speaker.

Swisscom customers can enjoy voice-enabled premium services simply by saying “Hey Swisscom” directly to the STB to connect with the Swisscom cloud. Users will also enjoy highly immersive 4K HDR television programming including content from services including Sky, DAZN, Netflix, and OCS.

Peter Fregelius, Head of TV & Entertainment at Swisscom, said: “We are very excited to launch the new Swisscom TV Entertainment OS 4 platform for our customers, a powerful solution that delivers comprehensive and unique content, brand new Swisscom services, and a totally immersive voice-enabled, ultra-HD television experience. It has once again been a pleasure working with Synaptics to help develop this truly exceptional user experience for our customers." 

Saleel Awsare, SVP & GM, IoT Division at Synaptics, said: “Swisscom has launched a very powerful and unique product and Synaptics is proud to have supported this project. Our unique ability to deliver a very high-performance integrated solution that combines our expertise in secure video, voice and audio has enabled Synaptics to be the market leader for Android-based media streamers. No other semiconductor company can provide such a complete solution. We have deployed and maintained powerful and highly advanced multimedia processor technology in service provider media streaming devices for many generations and we’re very pleased that Swisscom has once again chosen Synaptics as their partner.”
