Using Tvia 's CyberPro5005 streaming media processor, the third-generation set-top delivers advanced digital services for the intense user. Consumers can use it as a digital television receiver with picture-in-picture, VOD, a personal video recorder, CD and DVD player, MP3 player, or Internet access for Web and e-mail services. And the graphics actually look good.
Businesses can pass value-added services on to their set-top customers with ACTIVY 300's e-commerce and home banking capabilities. It can also manage interactive distance learning data distribution.
