ATLANTA -- NDS, the leading technology provider for digital pay-TV, today introduced its High Definition Digital Video Recorder, an Amino AmiNET530 Set-Top Box (STB) powered by Metro middleware, for the IPTV market – a first for the OpenCA industry. NDS Metro™ is an integrated IPTV middleware and conditional access solution that provides a complete end-to-end turnkey offering for telecommunications companies and broadband operators. The NDS HD DVR solution will be exhibited with live streaming of 100 video channels on an AmiNET530 in the NDS booth #214 at TelcoTV 2007.

SES AMERICOM, the only company delivering MPEG4 IPTV service to telcos in the US, is the first customer and will integrate the HD DVR solution into its IP-PRIME® IPTV solution for service providers.

“SES AMERICOM knows that HD is a major and increasingly larger factor in how consumers select their television service,” said Walt Davis, product manager for IP-PRIME at SES AMERICOM. “We have designed an IPTV service that delivers the best HDTV picture quality, as proven in side-by-side comparisons. Offering a DVR that delivers the same HD quality in recorded programs as the viewer experiences when watching the live program, is an obvious next step in IP-PRIME’s solution. SES AMERICOM is committed to ensuring that IP-PRIME enables service providers to offer their subscribers the best possible television experience, and NDS’ innovative HD DVR solution will be a truly compelling application for subscribers.”
