From Colin Mann in Amsterdam

Digital TV systems and software solutions supplier Advanced Digital Broadcast (ADB), has been selected to supply high definition, hybrid, digital video recorders (DVRs) to Telefónica in Spain. ADB's ADB-5810TWX platform has been launched at IBC2007 in Amsterdam and Telefónica 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, Telefónica´s technical manager in broadband equipment, said the product marked one of the world's first deployments of IPTV based digital video recording.
