The Evolution of the Set-top Box
-- DVX3662 - One of the leading gateways from ARRIS, the DVX3662 represents the evolution of the set-top. The DVB-C/IP video gateway is the center of the new IP connected home. The multi-tuner DVX3662 leverages transcoding, IP streaming, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and powerful software and cloud technology to deliver multiscreen and time-shift TV around the home, while reducing energy use and maintenance.
TV…Everywhere in the Home
-- VIP1113W - A compact wireless set-top box that can sit behind the TV, the VIP1113W delivers high-quality IPTV services and supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi, enabling interaction with most other devices in the home network as well as high-quality video distribution in the home. The compact design minimizes energy consumption, reducing its impact on the environment. The VIP1113W is powered by the ARRIS KreaTV operating system integrated with several Video on Demand (VOD), middleware, Digital Rights Management (DRM) and Conditional Access (CA) systems. -- VIP2502W - Your TV can be anywhere in your home because the set-top no longer needs to be wired to the broadband router. The VIP2502W is a Mediaroom set-top with wireless capability, recently introduced by Bell Canada for the launch of its Fibe TV service. It delivers easier installation, location flexibility with no unsightly cables for the consumer. When paired with the VAP2400 Wireless Video Bridge it delivers superior wireless performance over traditional Wi-Fi set-tops. Integrating Wi-Fi into the set-top reduces inventory, reduces cost and makes installation easier.
Wireless Video Distribution
-- The ARRIS wireless video bridge transmits HD video content securely throughout the home at an impressive unrivalled level of quality and reliability. Building on the success of the VAP2x00 line, ARRIS is introducing the new VAP3x00 video bridge, incorporating 802.11ac functionality. It incorporates the same revolutionary beam-forming 4x4 technology inherent in its predecessor - delivering whole-home coverage that outperforms other solutions on the market. It's also incredibly easy to install - a simple 'plug and play' set-up requires no software installation or visit from an installer.
