SemiDevices to Present New STB Designs at the CSTB’ 2011 International Exhibition

The exhibition will be held from February 1st to February 3rd. SemiDevices will present solutions for digital subscriber's TV based on STMicroelectronics chipsets. This presentation will be a part of the CSTB-2011 international exhibition, the main event for the television and telecommunications technology experts.
One of the main trends in the sphere of digital television is the spreading of the interactive services, Web-integration and HD support. This trend will incorporate platforms based on STi7105 and STi7167 HD chipsets. SemiDevices will offer a digital cable TV receiver based on STi5197 chipset (SD video) for the low-end market. All the models are equipped with embedded software (middleware) and can be customized within the shortest possible time. The target consumers of these products are small and medium-sized digital television operators.
The design of the set-top box based on STi7167 chipset should be paid special attention. It can be used to make DVB-C + IP or DVB-T + IP hybrid content delivery systems. This engineering solution can be equipped with a hard disk to record programs (PVR function – Personal Video Recorder) or it can be adjusted to CAS card solutions (conditional access systems). There are 2 variants of software for the platform based on STi7167 processor: the one developed by SemiDevices (based on web technologies) and the other one developed by OceanBlueSoftware (based on MHEG-5 International Standard).
All the enumerated SemiDevices products can be used to develop ready-made devices and to enter the market quickly. You can get detailed information about new solutions at the CSTB-2011 exhibition. SemiDevices will show its products at the stand of STMicroelectronics: stand 508, Crocus Expo Exhibition Center, Pavilion 1, Room 3.
