In addition to ALi AUI (Application Unified Interface) enabling efficient and seamless chipset migration from ALi H.264 platforms to new HEVC solutions, ALi further introduces a new fresh UI look to accommodate referencing system design.
“ALi has completed integration of HEVC to our STB chipset portfolio for our customers to upgrade their platforms to the latest video compression standard with minimum efforts and costs,” said Tony Chang, General Manager of ALi’s Broadcast and Broadband Media Business Unit. “HD HEVC set-top boxes are quickly rolling out around the world with the market to rise to 88 million units by 2020, according to ABI Research. ALi will continue to bring leading-edge STB chipset designs that allow service providers and STB manufacturers to deliver premium quality content with state-of-the-art technology and optimized cost structure.”

Taipei – August 26, 2015 – ALi Corporation, a leading Set-Top Box (STB) chipset solution provider, today introduced a pioneering application of its chipset product—DVB set-top box with sound bar. The innovation features ALi’s STB chipset supporting DVB-C/T2/S2 and IPTV video streaming and combines capability of premium-quality streaming music delivery to bring ultimate home entertainment experience.
As TV makers go to the extreme to design TVs as slim as possible, leaving little space for speakers that require volume in order to deliver decent sound, the industry looks to sound bars as a solution to complement today’s high definition displays. However, the sound bar is one more device that has to be connected with the TV, set-top box, and other entertainment equipment. ALi’s innovative solution combines set-top box with sound bar for both video and audio enjoyment without the hassle of additional wires or connection issues.
The integrated solution not only enhances sound quality of audio streaming from the TV broadcast but also functions as a standalone speaker capable of playing music from local USB storage, mobile devices via Bluetooth technology, and popular online services such as Spotify, Qobuz, and Deezer, without having to turn on the TV. In addition, ALi has also enabled remote control of the STB/Sound Bar solution on Android smartphones.
“ALi’s chipsets are high performing solutions to support a wide range of innovative and diverse applications,” said Dr. Ben Lin, Chairman and CEO of ALi Corporation. “The STB/Sound Bar combo we are introducing is an example of how ALi chipsets can be used to push the frontiers of home entertainment technology and inspire additional cutting-edge applications.”
Visitors are welcome to a live demonstration of the STB/Sound Bar solution at ALi’s Suite 2F #BM24, Hall 1, IBC 2015, taking place on September 11-15 in Amsterdam.
Note: Spotify, Qobuz, and Deezer are commercial music streaming services that provide digital rights management-restricted content. Subscription charges are applicable for access to the services.
