STMicroelectronics has announced the availability of a new single-chip HD STB decoder combining demodulation and decoding functions on a single device.
The STi7111, which has been designed to meet the requirements of major satellite operators worldwide, including DIRECTV, will allow OEMs to target consumers moving to HD services. By including a network interface, ST has ensured the STi7111 can be effectively used in a hybrid STB, where content is delivered by both a satellite and an IP network.
Built upon the decoding engine used in the STi7100 series of devices, the STi7111 supports H.264, VC1, MPEG-2 and other video standards. It includes circuitry to demodulate both DVB-S and DVB-S2 signals based on the STV0900 standalone product.
