Android IPTV TV STB + Digital TV Receiver (DVB-T/ISDB-T/ATSC)
IPTV is making an impact with its combination of network-bandwidth availability, content providers’ distribution goals, added content security, and consumer demand for more tailored programming. To support the transition to this technology, a hybrid STB is needed to deliver both terrestrial DTV and IPTV requirements. To deliver a great hybrid STB, the designer has to come up with the winning combination that addresses the various components of the streaming landscape like the resolution, video codec, container format, standard protocol, and the networking interface. The designer has to consider the diversity of the streams that need to be decoded and address the complete matrix. From a systems hardware perspective, a hybrid STB involves very little modification to the existing IPTV STB and hardly escalates the cost.
