MultiChoice has launched a decoder named the DStv Explora 2.
Introducing the DStv Explora 2
The Explora 2 is the fourth generation of HD PVR devices that ARRIS and MultiChoice have launched together.
In the future, its HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) technology will reduce the bandwidth needed to stream or download shows. This will help to lower your data charges incurred when streaming or downloading content from one of the DStv services.
The device features a streamlined hard drive and ships with a new remote control. The control features motion-sensor back-lit buttons and a dedicated ShowMax button.
“We invest in technology that enables us to offer our customers a leap in entertainment at the best value,” said Gerdus van Eeden, Group CTO Naspers: Video Entertainment Segment. “We’ve collaborated with ARRIS on our HD PVR decoders for nearly a decade. Therefore, we’re confident in their ability to deliver advanced technology to make tomorrow’s entertainment more accessible today. The DStv Explora 2 will help us to offer our customers a wider range of entertainment, which they can stream or download to watch when they are ready.”
“ARRIS and MultiChoice have a long-term partnership. We’ve built on this by designing another set-top for MultiChoice that uniquely addresses the needs of their customers,” said Steve McCaffery, Managing Director of International Sales and Business Operations for ARRIS. “Fitting their new HD PVR platform with HEVC was an elegant solution for delivering their full range of HD content. In addition, our global scale development expertise, coupled with our established local presence, enabled us to continue manufacturing the set-tops locally in South Africa, which represents our reciprocal investment in the region.”
