* Hybrid DVB-S/C STB

As television is gradually turning to high-definition digital broadcasting, cable/satellite and telecom operators are mustering their efforts to replace legacy equipment with high performing digital systems to greet the advent of new generation of interactive entertainment.  Focusing on OTT and IP STB development for years, Alpha Networks has accumulated a wealth of software modules and hardware design experience to enter the global pay TV market of premium cable/satellite TV with the dual-mode hybrid DVB-S/C set-top box.
