SanDisk Corporation and NDS have combined NDS MediaHighway set-top box software and SanDisk P4 solid state drives (SSD) to enable a new range of lower cost set-top box (STB) with DVR like functionality.

By provisioning a set-top box with a small amount of storage, operators can introduce new features such as live-pause and video on demand (VOD) with the ability to enable home networking functionality and advanced advertising solutions, including ad substitution. The solution also allows for the deployment of energy-efficient STBs with decreased power consumption, small form factors and virtually silent operation.

Demonstrations of the technologies that can be applied to SanDisk P4 SSD enabled set-top boxes will be displayed on the NDS stand at IBC.
