Motorola Ships One Millionth IP Set-Top Box

Motorola has shipped its one millionth Internet Protocol (IP) set-top box. The 1 millionth set-top -- the VIP1510 -- represents a significant advance from the first IP set top shipped in May 2001. It is part of a portfolio that includes a range of IP set-top series with support for a hard drive for DVR functionality and personal video storage as well as the ability to process MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/AVC in standard definition and high definition. There are also hybrid models for combining IPTV with digital terrestrial broadcasts.

  • In October 2006, Motorola Connected Home Solutions shipped its 50 millionth digital cable set-top box.
