At the IP&TV World Forum, AirTies Wireless Networks announced today that it has licensed Conax conditional access technology. The first product to launch is the Air 7210 Hybrid Cable Set-top box, a performance optimised, High-definition, dual-tuner. The Air 7210C is suited particularly well to markets where operators want to combine cable television delivery with added-value IP services including Smart TV, on demand and over-the-top (OTT) content.
The Air7210C is an advanced HD STB that delivers cable TV reception and additional access to popular on demand services and applications. The product supports HBB TV and accommodates PVR functionality via a user-installed USB hard disk drive or hard disk connected through e-SATAp port. AirTies Hybrid STBs offer Media Player functionality as well as full featured DLNA (including DMP/DMS/DMR with optional wireless connectivity via AirTies USB dongle). Its sleek and attractive design allows the Set-top box to be displayed anywhere in the home.
