Ericsson has signed a contract with fellow Swedish technology group Tilgin to supply internet protocol television (IPTV) set-top boxes. The agreement will see Tilgin IPTV set-top boxes being pre-integrated into Ericsson's IPTV end-to-end solutions.
Tilgin will supply IPTV set-top box solutions from the Mood 300 and Mood 400 series that include complete support for the latest generation of video compression MPEG-4 AVC and advanced functionality such as digital TV recorders and high definition TV (HDTV).
"We are proud to have been chosen by Ericsson. This agreement not only recognises the quality of our solution, but also promotes clear synergies, not least when it comes to IMS," said Ola Berglund, Tilgin CEO.
"We have been pioneering IPTV since the beginning of the decade and are continuing to do so within the framework of our Tilgin IMS@Home solution. Evolving IPTV to IMS TV will have an enormous impact on the industry."
