The Mobile Devices and Home business of Motorola has announced that KDDI, a mobile operator in Japan, has deployed Motorola’s high-definition (HD) IPTV set-top (model VIP 2060), providing enhanced personal media experiences to its Fiber to the Home (FTTH) subscribers. The VIP2060 will be launched June 2, as "HD-STB" for KDDI’s "au Hikari" service, which supports 1 Gbps ultra high-speed optical fiber broadband connections.
 
The Motorola VIP2060 is an IPTV set-top with a built-in 500 GB HDD to support DVR functionality. Its standard quad tuner enables users to watch and record IPTV programs provided by KDDI as well as terrestrial and satellite (BS/110CS) broadcast services via a connected external antenna, with support for both Japanese broadcasting standards – ISDB-T and ISDB-S.

With Motorola’s VIP2060, subscribers get a comprehensive package of advanced media capabilities, including simultaneous recording, time-shifted viewing, delayed playback, trick play DVR capabilities and transcoding of MPEG-2 & MPEG-4 AVC video.

The Motorola VIP2060 is a platform to enable KDDI’s "au BOX", providing video on demand capabilities and music capabilities that allow au mobile users to transfer content between the HD-STB and their mobile devices. In addition, the VIP2060 includes an electronic program guide for KDDI’s IPTV programming, as well as terrestrial and satellite BS/110CS broadcasted signals, that enables users to navigate and view channels, free-word search for programs, and schedule recordings of their favorite shows.
