STMicroelectronics and Liberate Technologies have partnered to develop a joint digital STB solution expected to reduce costs of volume deployments of digital TV receiver services.

This digital cable set-top offering is based on the STV0297 QAM demodulator and the STi5518 MPEG-2 digital video IC from STMicroelectronics. OEM manufacturers may take advantage of this solution to customize their offering, reduce their development effort and improve their time to market. These advantages are not limited to the STi5518 MPEG-2 digital video IC, as there are plans to develop solutions for other members of STMicroelectronics' decoder family.

The first STB implementation in volume will be provided by the Global Net Broadband Inc. to the mainland China cable market in July 2002.
