Over the Air Download (OTAD)

System software update (SSU) services for manufacturers and distributors

Levira OTAD service is designed for Set-top-box (STB) and for intigrated digital television set (iDTV) manufacturers who want to either correct software or provide a new features to receivers.

The OTAD service in short means that the new system software is broadcasted to the digital television receivers via Levira’s DVB-T network and the trouble of taking the receiver back to the store can be avoided. This saves the resources of both the consumer and the receiver manufacturer.

For each software update an Interoperability Test (IOT) shall be made by Levira. The purpose of the IOT is to verify the operation of the OTAD in the DVB-T network.

Levira does not test the different features of the new software but only that receiver accepts the SSU and the signaling of the software is according to standards.

The manufacturer or distributor of the receiver is always solely responsible for deciding what kind of new features the new software includes of – or what it repaires.
