STMicroelectronics announced that their SoC ICs for digital STBs are being used in the ongoing field trials by Mediaset, one of Italy's major broadcasters.

In September this year, Mediaset began trial broadcasts of a DVB-MHP (Digital Video Broadcasting - Multimedia Home Platform) service. Several manufacturers responded to the challenge of designing an STB for this market and selected STMicro's STi5517 MPEG decoder IC as the MPEG decoder.

The STi5517 is the latest addition to STMicro's family of OMEGA STB decoders. It combines many of the components of a digital STB into a single device, ensuring the lowest possible bill of materials for STB manufacturers.
