Dear Readers,
It isn’t often that we have the opportunity to introduce
a new receiver generation. After many years the time
has come again: the first real streaming box is here. The
interesting thing with this box is that you can no longer
directly connect a TV to this receiver; the TV channels
(and also, of course, radio channels) are just being
streamed. Therefore, this new method opens up an
entirely new market segment that fits right in with our
time: the TV channels that are received by the receiver
can be streamed to your own Smartphones and Tablets
and it’s those types of “TVs” are being used by more
and more viewers. But your regular TV can also receive
these channels as long as it can be connected to your
local network.
So, streaming boxes are fulfilling the precise requirements
that are demanded from today’s viewers. People today
don’t want to be restricted to watching their favorite
programs on a stationary TV in the living room, kitchen
or bedroom, they want to be able to watch on mobile
devices like the new Smartphones with their large high-
resolution screens or on tablets that would allow you to
watch TV at any position.
An interesting consequence of this new generation of
streaming boxes is the impact on TVs. For many years
we here at TELE-audiovision were also in doubt as to
whether digital receivers would be incorporated into TVs
over the long term. With these new streaming boxes,
the picture is now totally different: now it’s TVs with
built-in receivers that have no future. Soon all you’ll
need is just one streaming box and as many wired or
wireless monitors as you want connected to the local
network. The streaming box would be installed in a
central location and connected to all the available digital
reception methods (roof antenna, satellite dish, cable
TV, Internet) and that would be it. Every monitor in the
network would then have access to the content received
by the streaming box.
Now we can’t wait to see more streaming boxes and are
looking forward to see how quickly this new receiver
generation will prevail. The digital TV market continues
to be exciting!
