Tatung launches new digital STB2000 set-top box series

Tatung has launched its new high-definition, digital set-top boxes, which deliver full high-definition video, up to 1080i resolution, while simultaneously supporting streams encoded under MPEG-2, VC-1 and H.264 compression.

The Tatung STB2000 STB series are based on Sigma Designs' SMP8634 media processor. In addition to component and composite output, Tatung's new STBs also provide an HDMI interface.

The STB2000 hybrid functions not only as an interactive IPTV set-top box but also provides a digital TV tuner capability. The tuner will be supported under DVB-T standards in the first quarter of 2006, and later provide ATSC, DVB-C and DVB-S2. The STB2000 home networking feature can support mainstream products, such as Home PNA 3.0 and Home Plug.

“Will there be a shift from coax to fibre? Or a mixture between the two which will require hybrid solutions to be implemented?”
