LG Showcases Its Latest Set-top Box Lineup At IBC


LG Electronics will display its lineup of set-top boxes (STB) at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC), Europe's largest annual broadcast industry trade show.

The company will exhibit a total of 12 set-top box offerings, including its ULTRA HD STB and Smart Box based on the Android platform, at the five-day event.

"LG has been aggressive expanding its set-top box capabilities since launching the world's first H.264 AVC based HD set-top box in the United States in 2005," said Suk-ho Noh, executive director of the Media Business Division at LG Electronics. "The IBC is an excellent opportunity for us to forge new relationships and demonstrate how our expertise in TVs can benefit customers of our set-top boxes. Our STBs all feature LG's easy-to-use Smart TV platform, guaranteeing incredible convenience and access to an abundance of content and sharing options."

The technological advancements that led to the development of LG's ULTRA HD TVs have also been incorporated in the ULTRA HD set-top box. This new STB has a built-in 60p High Efficiency Video Compression (HEVC) decoder that reduces bandwidth requirements by more than 50 percent. It is compatible with large-scale commercial displays, such as video walls and virtual windows and offers access to the home networking service, making it possible to share and display content via DLNA, WiFi and MoCA (Multimedia over Coax Alliance).

LG introduced an Android TV set-top box in October last year and is currently the only manufacturer to have passed Google's Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) evaluation process. LG's Android-powered STB provides users with all the benefits of the Android TV platform such as Google Services, Google Play, Google Search and the Chrome web browser. It is also capable of receiving terrestrial broadcast transmissions and offers integrated Smart TV services such as IPTV, HD Channel (VoD service), Second TV, Phone to TV and Easy File Sharing via a built-in networking solution.
