IP set-top boxes (IP STB)

For the purpose of watching viaTV on a standard television set (not equipped with an IP set-top box), it is necessary to use an external IP set-top box. This device is then connected directly into the television set and converts the transmitted viaTV signal into a form, with which the television set operates (analogue or digital).

The IP STB is similar to a DVB-T set-top box for reception of terrestrial digital broadcasting, as far as its appearance and principle of work are concerned; nevertheless these two devices are not mutually interchangeable.

In the viaTV digital cable television service, T-Systems uses a new HD set-top Motorola VIP 1910. This set-top box offers a high quality of picture and sound – a high-definition picture (full HDTV) through HDMI connector, and, as far as sound is concerned, apart from analogue stereo, a digital sound as well (optical and coaxial output). The set-top box uses both the MPEG-2 and the MPEG-4 coding.

Features:

  • signal input: Ethernet 10/100BaseT / 1xRJ-45 connector
  • Video format: MPEG-4, MPEG-2
  • Audio format: MPEG-1/2/3, AAC

  • 1x HDMI (picture and sound for HD resolution) in both 1280x720p (HD ready) and 1920x1080i (full HD) resolutions
  • Audio L/R (2x cinch – analogue stereo sound for an amplifier)
  • S/PDIF (1x cinch – digital 3D 5.1 sound for an amplifier with a 3D sound decoder)
  • Toslink (1x optical – digital 3D 5.1 sound for an amplifier with a 3D sound decoder)
  • 2x USB (for connecting to a computer)
