Digital TV systems and software solutions supplier Advanced Digital Broadcast (ADB), has been selected to supply high definition, hybrid, digital video recorders (DVRs) to TelefÃ³nica in Spain. ADB's ADB-5810TWX platform has been launched at IBC2007 in Amsterdam and TelefÃ³nica will be the first IPTV operator to deploy it in volume.
The ADB-5810TWX has been specifically designed for the hybrid IPTV market where access to broadcast services alongside those delivered over IP provide a comprehensive viewing portfolio. Javier Lucendo de Gregorio, TelefÃ³nicaÂ´s technical manager in broadband equipment, said the product marked one of the world's first deployments of IPTV based digital video recording.
