EchoStar Europe has launched a new universal IP set-top box, the HDX-200, which supports the Android operating system (OS) and also ships with secure processor technology. The unit provides the interface between the Internet or IP network and a consumer’s TV screen.??

The HDX-200 was designed to be dual functioning, to enable over-the-top service providers to reach customers with TV centric apps and services, and secondly to be rolled out as a multi-room IP client device, allowing TV operators to extend services from a central gateway to other display devices throughout the home network.??

The HDX-200 supports the Android OS including Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and a WebKit-based browser. Multi-codec support includes MPEG-2, MPEG-4/H.264 AVC, WM-9/VC-1, VP6, AAC and MP3 standards. Connectivity is offered with interfaces including HDMI Ethernet 10/100, S/PDIF and USB 2.0 with further options for powerline and wireless networking to the 802.11n standard.

The HDX-200 also supports the industry’s leading conditional access, digital rights management and middleware solutions and ultra-low power operation to meet European energy efficiency requirements.
