Chinese telco equipment provider ZTE has launched a new generation HD DTH set-top box.
ZTE claims that the STB – the ZXV10 B710S2-A15 – “features high performance, ultra-fast switching and easy upgrade, and aims at facilitating the service development of clients in the DTH market”.
The unit itself is powered by a 32-bit dual-core processor, supports 10bit H.264/HEVC hard decoding. Its video resolution is up to 1080p, 60 frames-per-second and its channel switching time is less than 1 second. The unit supports satellite digital TV standards, DVB-S and DVB-S2.
ZTE has seen its STBs adopted by more than 120 sites in over 45 countries worldwide.
Most recently in Europe, ZTE struck an agreement with Spanish regional cable operator Euskatel in February to become the cable operator’s reference provider for fibre end-user equipment.―Digital TV Europe
