Hybrid Solutions

Hybrid set-top boxes add an IP connection to a conventional terrestrial, satellite, or cable set-top box. The IP connection uses the Internet to access additional content such as Video-on-Demand (VoD), social sites (Twitter, Facebook, etc.), OTT sites (Netflix, YouTube, Vudu, etc.), and general web browsing.

Our family of architecture-compatible Secure Media Processors, SDKs, and development kits enable fast development of a hybrid set-top box with a wide variety of feature options:

  • Support for DVB-T/T2, DVB-S/S2, DVB-C, ATSC, ISDB
  • Z-Wave® RF remote control.
  • Integrated support for Z-Wave® enabled home automation, home security monitoring, and home energy management products. This enables service providers to offer additional premium services, such as home security monitoring, for the home.
  • 802.11n, G.hn, HomePNA®, or HomePlug® home AV networking.
  • Streaming of on-line movies, TV shows, and videos (over-the-top or OTT content).
  • Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA®) support enables consumers to locate and enjoy content anywhere on their home AV network and effortlessly move or stream this content between DLNA-connected devices.
  • 3D graphics, enabling dynamic and customizable user interfaces by supporting the flipping, rotating, warping, and moving of images.
  • 3D video, enabling consumers to experience a new level of 3DTV viewing experience in the home.
