Set-top Box Brings Innovative Media Experiences to KDDI’s Customers

Motorola today announced that KDDI, a major mobile operator in Japan, has deployed Motorola’s innovative high-definition (HD) IPTV set-top (model VIP2060 ), providing enhanced personal media experiences to its Fiber to the Home (FTTH) subscribers. The VIP2060 will be launched in Japan on 2 June as “HD-STB” for KDDI’s “au Hikari” service, which supports 1 Gbps ultra high-speed optical fiber broadband connections.

The Motorola VIP2060 is a flexible, IPTV set-top with a built-in 500 GB HDD to support DVR functionality. Its standard quad tuner enables users to watch and record IPTV programs provided by KDDI as well as terrestrial and satellite (BS/110CS) broadcast services via a connected external antenna, with support for both Japanese broadcasting standards — ISDB-T and ISDB-S. With Motorola’s VIP2060, subscribers get a comprehensive package of advanced media capabilities, including simultaneous recording, time-shifted viewing, delayed playback, trick play DVR capabilities and transcoding of MPEG-2 & MPEG-4 AVC video.

“It’s our mission to provide our customers with an advanced, media-rich entertainment lifestyle,” said Masahiro Inoue, Associate Senior Vice President, General Manager, Mobile Technology Sector, KDDI. “By working with Motorola, a global leader in developing and delivering innovative video solutions, we are able to provide significant value to our customers, including great IPTV HD and on-demand experiences as well as advanced time-shifting and mobility services. The launch of “HD-STB” marks a key milestone in further advancing our Fixed Mobile Broadcasting Convergence (FMBC) service, enabled by au BOX.”

The Motorola VIP2060 is a platform to enable KDDI’s “au BOX,” providing video on demand capabilities and music capabilities that allow au mobile users to transfer content between the “HD-STB” and their mobile devices. In addition, the VIP2060 includes an electronic program guide (EPG) for KDDI’s IPTV programming, as well as terrestrial and satellite BS/110CS broadcasted signals, that enables users to navigate and view channels, free-word search for programs, and schedule recordings of their favorite shows.
