Hamburg, May 26, 2023 - TeraVolt and ZDF celebrate the successful launch of the new Big Screen Application of ZDFmediathek for HbbTV. TeraVolt is a long-standing partner of ZDF and has been responsible for HbbTV, Smart TV, and third-party platforms such as SKY, Telekom Magenta, and Vodafone Germany since the summer 2020. 

The challenging project included a comprehensive redesign of the ZDFmediathek application. The design underwent a re-brush to improve the further content presentation. In addition, the front-end and back-end were completely redeveloped to provide a contemporary and user-friendly interface and to lay a powerful technical foundation for future developments. 

The collaboration between the TeraVolt and ZDF teams was a prime example of effective and dynamic teamwork. Through absolute dedication and goal-oriented cooperation, the project was not only successfully implemented, but also set new standards for future joint projects. 

Mirko Rasche, Client Service Director at TeraVolt, commented on the collaboration and project as follows: "Taking responsibility for the primary digital playout path for Europe's largest broadcaster is a great challenge. Our team at ZDF and TeraVolt have achieved a remarkable feat and successfully modernized the most technically sophisticated TV media library in the DACH region, highlighting our technological expertise and innovation."

Oliver Koch, COO, and founder of TeraVolt proudly added: "The redesign of ZDFmediathek's big screen application aimed to provide users with a premium user experience through an intuitive interface and an advanced technology base. We are confident that the goal was achieved." 

We invite you to discover the experience of the revamped ZDFmediathek Big Screen application on HbbTV and be inspired by the improved offering.
