Technicolor has announced it has reached the milestone of 150 million digital set top boxes (STBs) since it shipped its first one in 1994.

The technology group has been able to ship more than 10 million STBs per year over the last 10 years, with a significant increase of delivery to fast-growing markets such as Latin America, India and Southern Asia over the last few quarters. The 150 millionth STB was shipped to Indian TV operator Tata Sky, a customer of Technicolor since 2006.

"This milestone confirms Technicolorís ability to maintain technology leadership over time for delivering video solutions to cable, satellite, terrestrial, and Hybrid/IP network providers," the company said in a statement.
