Arris will preview two new lines of HEVC set-top boxes at IBC, featuring new slim designs and 802.11ac WiFi support.

The VIP4000 Series and VIP5000 Series of set-tops are based on Arris’ open IPTV platform KreaTV and are designed to support a range of software applications and new entertainment experiences like Ultra HD.

“Our new lines of HEVC set-tops showcase our vision for the future of set-top design,” said Larry Robinson, president, CPE business, Arris.

The technology in these devices deliver that and more, featuring HEVC decode for Ultra HD video and the latest 802.11ac WiFi to bring that experience to the growing assortment of connected devices.”

The VIP4000 Series includes three boxes – the VIP4000, VIP4300, and VIP4600 and are designed to be “slim, powerful, connected.”
