Motorola has introduced a new range of ‘eco-friendly’ IPTV set top boxes at IBC 2009, which it claims will help service providers and consumers reduce their carbon footprint.
The high definition (HD) STBs are compliant with new US and EU initiatives for low-power consumption devices in the home, featuring next-generation power management capabilities for lower energy consumption.
Motorola also showcased its VIP series STBs in low-power modes on its IBC stand. The STBs surpass the latest required power consumption regulations and standards, which include the US body ENERGY STAR and the EU's Eco-Design Directives for Energy-using Products (EuPs).
"We are continually looking for ways to improve the environmental profile of our products, as well as running our operations in a safe and energy-efficient manner," claimed Keith Kelley, vice president and general manager, EMEA and Asia Pacific STBs, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility.
