MyBox Technologies, a Hero Electronix venture, specialising in the research & development and manufacturing of set-top boxes, announced it is now an Alexa Voice Service (AVS) solution provider. Collaborating with Amazon, MyBox is one of the first systems integrators to build an AVS solution for the video platform. MyBox’s solution allows set-top box manufacturers to bring the power of Alexa to their devices, providing customers with the simplicity of voice control and access to more than 15,000 Alexa skills.
The MyBox solution enables cable and DTH operators to bring Alexa to compatible, pre-existing set-top boxes. Paired with MyBox’s hub and microphone-equipped remote control, customers will have access to Alexa and the ability to control smart home devices, play music, shop for household goods, and more – hands-free.
