Dune HD Shows TV-204 HEVC-enabled STB
LONDON -- Dune HD, the award-winning manufacturer of full HD media players and connected set-top boxes, introduces its full line of IPTV / VOD / OTT devices, including the new HEVC-capable Dune HD TV-204 at TV Connect 2014 this week. Dune HD is the leading IP set-top vendor to demonstrate HEVC compatibility publicly with the TV-204, the first cost-effective full-featured set-top box to support HEVC. Operators can see the TV-204 playing a variety of HEVC-encoded content at TV Connect Stand 109.
HEVC-encoded content can be 50% smaller than comparable H.264 / AVC, allowing tremendous bandwidth savings for operators and streaming service providers. The TV-204 supports Full HD resolution, all streaming formats, including DRM / CAS from Verimatrix and other leading technologies, and web interfaces Webkit and HTML5 included. Dune HD offers flexible middleware options with highly competitive prices, and plans to sample the TV-204 model in Q2 with mass production in Q3 2014. Additionally, new Dune HD products will support UHD 4k beginning in Q3 2014.
