The top menu is accessible when the user presses ‘Menu’ on the RCU. Top menu items are navigable via left/right, pressing OK on an item will open the relevant screen. Focus remains to the left of the menu; items resize and ease in to position.
Settings operates much like top menu, focus remains central so the user can press down to access available options.
Every screen and interaction were extensively documented for engineers, clients and testing. In total, 17 documents were created for the UI.
A version of the UI was designed for The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) in Nigeria for their digital switch over. It’s expected to become the largest free to air platform in the world. The UI will be used on over 1 million set top boxes.
The following companies have also been involved in the deployment and demonstration of the UI: ABS-CBN, ABU-Myanmar, ADM, Bein Sports, Chad, CTH, Filbox, Freesat Thailand, Ghana TV, Kompas, MTN, Netsa TV, Nexmedia, Orange, ORS, Pico, Radiokomunikace, SK and SKY Cable.
