Turkish satellite operator Digiturk has partnered with technology provider Altech Multimedia to launch a new generation hybrid HD set-top-box.

The new line of Altech-developed DT-7103HD boxes will integrate TeleIDEA’s smartware solution with Irdeto’s conditional access system to secure Digiturk’s content, the operator said.

Digiturk will also offer VOD content over IP using Microsoft’s Playready streaming technology and the platform includes HD PVR functionality through the use of external USB connected storage media.

“For Digiturk it is essential to meet and continuously over exceed our customers’ expectations in order to secure their satisfaction, improve the user experience and grow our overall business. By connecting the two worlds of broadcast and broadband on content side and with innovative hybrid technology products we are on the right track to exactly achieve those goals,” said Taylan Özsipahi, director of the set top box and conditional access department at Digiturk.
