Skyworth Digital was one of more than 1,800 exhibitors to have its stand judged according to its creativity, impact and how fit-for-purpose it was. The stand’s attractiveness, to what extent the design reflects the company’s corporate image and signage around the booth was also considered by the judges.

With a showcase of Skyworth Digital’s full product range of set-top boxes, OTT solutions, broadband and mobile devices, the company was able to show visitors its vision for the future digital home and highlight how tomorrow’s trends can be integrated and packaged in solutions today. Skyworth Digital representatives were also on-hand to demonstrate the value and high-quality solutions available for thousands of visitors and delegates, with a particular focus on the new products launched by Skyworth Digital during IBC 2016 – including miniStation, a first-of-its-kind OTT gaming console launched in partnership with Tencent Holdings.

“As a leading solutions provider, IBC is an incredibly important show for us and we are extremely pleased that our stand has hit the right notes with the organizers and been officially recognized,” said Darrell Haber, Vice General Manager at Skyworth Digital. “IBC is always a very successful event for us but this year has surpassed previous shows, confirming the acceptance and growth of the Skyworth Digital brand in Europe and beyond.”

During IBC, Skyworth Digital also announced it will provide multiple next-generation STBs for a project led by Dish Mexico. This is the latest in a line of successes for Skyworth Digital, with its latest company figures revealing that the company shipped 30 million STBs globally during 2015 – more than 50 per cent of which came from international sales – making Skyworth Digital the third largest STB manufacturer in the world.
