MUMBAI: Videocon d2h has decided to go one step further to strengthen its technology by tying up with Taiwan based MStar Semiconductor for its new HD MPEG-4 DVB-2 set top boxes (STB) that will be provided to the Indian market.

The new STB with MStar’s technology provides features such as PVR that allows users to watch content of their interest at their own time. It also allows for watching TV channels with functions such as title/time based recording, rewind and forward, auto serial recording, pause live TV and mark-skip-watch.

“Having a 10 million subscriber base in a very short time in India is a strong testimony of Videocon d2h's success. It is our honor and pleasure to be the partner with Videocon d2h. Leveraging our cutting-edge set-top box platform, we will continue to support Videocon d2h to further build upon their success,” says MStar Semiconductor chairman Wayne Liang.

Videocon d2h CEO Anil Khera said “We have partnered with MStar, global leader in integrated chips. The ease of user experience, best in class integration and performance provide a significant edge for our cutting edge high definition set-top box. We are hopeful that MStar technology will provide better experience to our consumers as we are looking at consolidating our leadership position.”

 

Currently Videocon d2h is offering its SD STBs at Rs 1990 the HD ones cost Rs 2000. In an earlier interview Khera had told indiantelevision.com that the DTH operators’ current number of HD subscribers is 8 per cent of the total that has the potential to rise to 20 per cent in the coming few years.

 

In 2014, the DTH platform’s parent company Videocon group is planning to set up a one million STB plant that will provide STBs for people in phases III and IV of digitisation.
