Set-top boxes (STB) have become the master control point for high-definition TV and the newer Internet Protocol television (IPTV) services offered by cable companies and some telecoms. They get more sophisticated each year as they add features like hard drives for the personal video recorder (PVR) and home networking options.

Amino Communications’ next-generation AmiNET530 targets service providers who want to offer a multiplay strategy by offering high quality on-demand services, IPTV, PVRs, gaming, and HD services using MPEG2 or MPEG4 codecs. The hard disk for digital video recording is 80 Gbytes.

The MPEG2/4 codecs support HD resolutions of 720p and 1080i. Video screens may use 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios. A full range of audio and video connections are available, including composite and S-video, component video (YCrCb), HDMI, 10/100 Ethernet, and 5.1 stereo surroundsound. The HomePNA 3.0 home networking system is supported, as is MoCA (Multimedia over Cable Alliance).
