Samsung Electronics has selected National Semiconductor Corp.'s Geode processor technology to be used on its Internet Protocol (IP) digital STBs.

Samsung's latest STBs are able to deliver video-on-demand (VOD) and TV receiver over IP networks, and MPEG2 compression for images. This IP STB is scheduled to be launched in Japan for the purpose of the interactive TV receiver service, known as "BB Cable TV," by SOFTBANK Broadmedia Corp.

"Demand on streaming media or processing graphic intensive contents is increasing rapidly in set-top boxes. National's Geode SC1200 is a low-cost but high performance STB solution. It provides a streaming media decoding platform which has enhanced the flexibility and variety of video-on-demand services to our worldwide customers," said Dr. Hee-Won Park, senior manager of Set-top Box Development of Samsung.
