LG introduces new IP set-top box for use in hotels


LG Electronics USA has introduced a new set-top box that will deliver IP services on hotels' existing RF networks. The new device, model STB-3500, provides expanded networking options, according to LG, giving hoteliers a way to provide "an advanced, interactive guest room experience over the existing coaxial network."

The STB-3500 is the company's newest addition to its Pro:Centric IPTV platform and it has a DOCSIS 3.0 modem expansion slot. Other features include DRM and MPEG-2/MPEG-4 decoding for digital HD-PPV compatibility and access to an expanded list of smart applications, such as music and over-the-top video. Also, the platform provides second-screen support, enabling guests to view video from mobile devices on the TV. Release
