SysMaster’s Release of Breakthrough Tornado M50 Set Top Box Propels Quality of IPTV and Video-on-Demand Content to New Levels
H.264 compression and High-Definition video let providers deliver stunningly rich content
WALNUT CREEK, CA, January 18, 2008 – SysMaster Corporation, a leading provider of VoIP, IPTV and Wireless solutions for telecoms and service providers, announces release of its highly anticipated Tornado M50™ Set Top Box (STB)—opening up new profit channels for companies that deliver content over the Internet. With audiences clamoring for rich, High-Definition (HD) viewing experiences, Tornado M50 is a key resource in the arsenal of providers seeking cost-effective ways to meet that demand.
Specifically designed for the burgeoning IPTV and Video-on-Demand markets, the Tornado M50 STB supports both H.264 video compression and High-Definition video. Equipped with bandwidth-sparing H.264 technology, Tornado M50 delivers cost-effectively the superb quality and clarity that subscribers have come to expect. For IPTV deployments in closed network infrastructures, where bandwidth is not a concern, the Tornado M50 delivers HD video with resolutions up to 1080p. These higher video resolutions are essential to providing optimal clarity and quality for large format TVs.
“SysMaster works with many customers who use the Internet to deliver IPTV and Video-on-Demand offerings to their subscribers,” said Kirk Iliev, SysMaster COO. “Tornado M50’s H.264 video compression technology allows providers to pack more rich content into their offerings while using less costly bandwidth. These economies dramatically reduce their operating expenses while benefiting subscribers with superior picture quality.”
Fully integrated with SysMaster’s popular IPTV product portfolio, the Tornado M50 can be deployed quickly with nearly no integration investment, making it even more attractive to providers. To address the fast-growing appetite for ever more dynamic and engaging entertainment experiences, SysMaster will also offer an enhanced Tornado M50 version with support for a variety of output interfaces, including HDMI, Component Video, S-Video, and Audio Optical Fiber (SPDIF).
