Istanbul, Turkey – AirTies Wireless Networks, a supplier of advanced wireless and OTT/IPTV technologies, will be showcasing a portable wireless set-top box, small enough to fit into your handbag. Measuring just 10 x 10cm, the miniature STB attaches wirelessly to the IP gateway and can easily be moved from room to room. It features RF remote control and home automation capabilities to enable remote programming and is portable enough to take on holiday or to a neighbour’s house to watch football.
The combination of WiFi connectivity and the device’s miniature form-factor makes it a “Set-top box To Go”, allowing consumers to take their HD viewing experience with them to the next room or the next country. The STB wirelessly connects to the home gateway and works on any unmanaged internet connection, effectively unbundling the provision of the Pay-TV service from the broadband service offering and opening up new revenue-stream opportunities.
The Air 7405 is a small OTT/IPTV STB and now available in trial quantities. It utilises the latest Broadcom 7250 System-on-a-chip (SOC) chipset with 5K DMIPS CPU, an HEVC decoder, and USB 3.0 plus AirTies’ hallmark wireless video connectivity. The Air 7405 comes complete with built-in 2×2 802.11ac wireless connectivity, operating at 2.4 or 5GHz frequencies, together with its trademark AirTies Mesh Technology, allowing consumer self-service installation and extending the wireless coverage to every corner of the house.
