“Sysmaster is a leader in providing integrated IPTV solutions to service providers serving the ethnic communities in North America and Europe. Most of the originating content in this segment is still broadcast in standard definition. There is also a large base of legacy Analog SD television sets with the customers. While the latest digital television sets are used to watch the regular broadcast HD channels, consumers are using the old Analog sets for the Ethnic content. Sysmaster wanted to offer a solution to this niche segment, by offering a no frills Standard Definition device at a very affordable price. We did not want to burden the consumer with a high cost HD device which also played SD, when all they watch is a SD channel on a SD TV, according to the CEO of Sysmaster. The new M73 box has most of the essential features of a IPTV STB – Live Channels, VOD and PPV options and will enable our service provider customers to compete with the Android boxes, added the CEO.”
