Thomson supports eco-friendly HD cable

Thomson has officially launched its new DCI704 cable receiver. The set-top box, already being deployed by Portugalís ZON Multimedia, features an integrated cable modem and high definition capability.

The DCI704 is also the first product in the 700 Series to sport a new compact and ecological design capable of less than one-watt power consumption in deep standby mode.

ZON has already taken advantage of the DCI704ís integrated DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS modem through its recent launch of its 100 Mbps broadband service. The latest addition to the 700 Series also allows operators to run next generation services such as video on demand.

Features also include optional VC-1 decoding; high definition video support up to 1080p, multi-channel digital audio support; and two high-speed USB ports capable of mounting an external hard drive.
