PARIS--(Marketwire - Jul 17, 2012) - Technicolor (PARIS: TCH) announces the roll-out of T-Hub 2® -- a next generation home communication solution for Telstra, Australia's leading telecommunications and information services company. Leveraging their long term relationship in building advanced broadband solutions for Australian consumers, Telstra and Technicolor have co-designed the successor of the successful first T-Hub generation.
Michel Rahier, President Connected Home Division, said: "We are very pleased to partner with Telstra to build its next generation home communication and media solution. We share the same vision of an innovative connected home that enhances consumers' lives. This is why we have built this fully integrated products' ecosystem to offer Telstra's consumer with a high-quality platform for today and tomorrow's home services."
Telstra's Director of Broadband and Devices, John Chambers, said: "T-Hub 2 caters to what modern households need in a home phone, offering a smarter way to make calls and access handy internet services like live weather updates and social networking sites. T-Hub 2 owners can access unique fixed line features for the Australian home phone including handsfree calling from a tablet and voicemails displayed as a list so owners can see who called and jump to the messages they want to hear most."
The T-Hub 2 combines a state-of-the-art DECT Phone with a DECT-enabled 7-inch tablet, to provide a seamless communication and multimedia experience across the home. The T-Hub tablet enables customers to access media and information services such as news, sport and weather using TelstraOne and pre-installs handy applications such as TuneIn, giving consumers access to thousands of radio stations. The tablet sits upright in a charging cradle with stereo speakers so consumers can enjoy high quality music. The tablet has a built-in kick stand meaning it can be used easily throughout the home.
Customers can enjoy the simplicity of handling calls with a single touch, enriched with unified address book, messaging, and calendar applications. The T-Hub 2 is also a powerful multimedia Android™ tablet that can play personal content seamlessly, on the tablet's screen or on the main TV thanks to its micro HDMI output. To maximize consumers' possibilities, the T-Hub also offers access to Google Play™, enabling consumers to complete their experience with their choice of a wide range of applications.
