SANTA CLARA, Calif. and GENEVA -- Minerva Networks, the leading provider of open IPTV service delivery platforms and applications, and Advanced Digital Broadcast (ADB) (www.adbglobal.com), a leader in the design and development of high-quality set-top boxes (STBs) to the digital television market, announce today the certification and immediate availability of Minerva's iTVManager IPTV services management platform and ADB's new ADB-3800W high definition (HD) IPTV set-top box. This solution will enable telcos to deliver television services to their subscribers using standard definition (SD), HD, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 formats.

"Without HD services, IPTV operators have been at a disadvantage relative to their cable and satellite competition. This integrated solution levels the playing field," stated Jean-Georges Fritsch, COO of Minerva Networks. "ADB has been a terrific partner in this process and our customers will be pleased with the results. Minerva is proud to have ADB as a fully certified HD/H.264 STB partner."

ADB has already won two international industry awards for its HD/Advanced Video Coding (AVC) IPTV technology and is the leader in hybrid IPTV STB deployments in Europe. This initiative marks its entry into the North American IPTV market.

"We are delighted to have worked with Minerva Networks on this project and can confirm that our joint IPTV solution is now certified and immediately available," commented Philippe Lambinet, CEO of ADB. "Our feature-rich technology can now be rolled-out to telcos, enabling them to deliver new revenue-generating, TV-centric services to their consumers, while optimizing network performance through the introduction of advanced video coding [MPEG-4]."
