Broadband TV.

PaceIP215

Broadband TV (aka IPTV) and Video on Demand came a hefty step closer yesterday when Pace announced the launch of the 490 MIPs IP215, the world’s first hardware H.264 set top box. What’s it mean? That set top boxes are now powerful enough to decode super compressed video sent down standard Internet broadband pipes. Decent quality pictures using minimal bandwidth! Watch this space, peeps!

    Oops. thanks Peter. :-) I think that the key points are 'hardware' and 'H.264', so it may well be worth seeing once it starts to roll out in earnest.

  • (title typo?) Regarding this technology, I’d have to see it to believe it.

    This is not the first hardware-based H264 STB.
