“As the number one provider of Android TV STBs in the world, Technicolor Connected Home has worked successfully to meet network service provider (NSP) deployment requirements across the globe over the past year. We have met these demands despite the production and supply chain challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Mounir Toutah, Video Product Director, Technicolor Connected Home.
