Telco TV equipment and services specialist Netgem has announced partnerships with audio brands Tangent and Elipson to become the first electronics manufacturers to take its SoundBox solutions to the consumer market.

netgem 27sep2017SoundBox is marketed as the first fully integrated audio and video digital solution for the smart home. In a single device, and with what is claimed is a unique application, it offers a sound bar to improve the audio quality of flat screen TVs; a compact connected speaker that plays music from any source, including mobile devices; and a TV receiver compatible with live and on-demand services. SoundBox can be fully controlled with a single remote control, an application or Amazon Alexa voice control.

In operation for more than 20 years, Tangent produces products that are said to be characterised by a signature Scandinavian minimalism aesthetic design. Elipson has made speakers for more than 50 years.

Netgem is confident that its products will put the Tangent and Elipson in a position to capture a bigger share of the booming over-the-top (OTT) market, while maintaining the benefit of personalised relationships with their customers.

Commenting on the move, Netgem CEO Joseph Haddad said: “OTT is transforming the triple-play market as we know it today. With SoundBox and our open Diamond software platform, we open new opportunities for service providers to partner with consumer electronics and both can benefit from the OTT revolution.’’
