Echostar to demo world’s slimmest DVR

Set-top specialist Echostar Europe (Stand O34) will use ANGA Cable to highlight its recently-launched Ultra Slim Box, the slimmest commercially available DVR in the world.

With a form factor of 14mm deep, the Ultra Slim Box’s feature set includes a 500GB hard disk drive, twin tuner, HDMI connection and internet connectivity for accessing over-the-top (OTT) content. Echostar will also demo its Android-powered IP set-top box that is designed to enable operators and content providers to enrich their service portfolios by extending services over IP using a web-centric application development platform. Also on show will be Echostar’s Advanced Cable Gateway that combines wide band multi-tuner cable TV reception, DVR and the ability to share content with client devices inside or outside the home.

Echostar will also highlight its complete range of cable connected devices, including the recently launched HDC-420, a high definition set-top that is pre-integrated with conditional access and embedded software. EchoStar will also showcase its HDC-600 series Unitymedia DVR.
