ADB selects MediaTek for STB chipset

TV and broadband solutions provider ADB has chosen MediaTek to provide chipsets for its latest satellite STB platform. 

ADB, which deploys its products with major operators in Europe and Australia, creates a range of products such as set-top boxes and broadband software. 

It says that the 4K-supporting MediaTek chipset is “ideally suited to the growing consumer demand for high-quality entertainment experiences”. The platform is run on ADB’s software, which is a part of the overall system the company provides to operators.

Krzysztof Biliński, CTO at ADB said: “The design of MediaTek’s chipsets is a model example of a perfectly balanced ratio between price and supported features without compromising quality. We are glad to build our products based on this solution.”

Winson Hsu, assistant general manager of MediaTek Intelligent Device Business Group said: “Pay-TV operators are looking for feature-rich and reliable platforms to support next-generation entertainment. With ADB’s new platform powered by MediaTek, consumers can enjoy the latest high-quality 4K content with best-in-class user experiences.”

Earlier this year, ADB signed a deal with Telenor to provide its graphyne2 pay TV system to subscribers connected to Telenor’s Cable and IP network.

ADB’s graphyne2 solution includes an ADB designed Service Delivery Platform and client software, enabling Telenor to provide its services through a single back-end to all users’ devices including set-top boxes, tablets, smartphones, Apple TV, PCs and Android TV based devices, according to ADB.
