STMicroelectronics Supplies Chips for KT's IPTV STB

STMicroelectronics has supplied the silicon for set-top boxes (STBs) being used by KT's new IPTV service. ST's STi710x family offers single-chip H.264/AVC and VC-1 decoding.

KT chose the STi710x-based set-top boxes from Humax (model name: TS-110) and Samsung (SMT-H6170), both of which are KT's consortium partners for the country's IPTV service. Additionally, LG-Nortel, another consortium partner for the service, is also developing its set-top boxes based on the STi710x.
