IBC Amsterdam 2006: Siemens presents digital entertainment products for today and tomorrow


Munich, Aug 23, 2006, Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices will be showcasing their home media portfolio at this year’s IBC (International Broadcast Conference) in Amsterdam from September 8-12: including set-top boxes for digital TV (DVB-S, C and T), IPTV and HDTV as well as integrated solutions for triple play services.

As one of the world’s most important trade shows for producers of entertainment technology and content as well as management solutions, the IBC show offers Siemens an ideal platform for the presentation of their attractive, comprehensive portfolios of set-top boxes and integrated solutions for digital home entertainment. In addition to digital TV, Gigaset products enable the easy, convenient use of integrated services, which bundle Voice over IP Telephony, Internet access as well as TV and video offerings over a broadband connection.

“The range of digital television and of integrated services is constantly growing. That means extensive, but also more individual and custom-made entertainment and communications for customers at home, “explained Harald Sendlinger, Head of Product Management for Home Media Division at Siemens Home and Office Communication Devices.

From set-top boxes, to Gateways and VoIP telephones, Siemens offers innovative and at the same time, easy-to-use products from a single source.

For the reception of digital TV via Internet (IPTV), Siemens presents a viable solution for the future with the Gigaset HD860 IP: The IPTV set-top box allows not only extensive applications like video on demand, time-shift TV or Internet surfing, but also supports high definition television (HDTV). Gateways such as the Gigaset SX551 are complete home networking solutions and can connect to TV set-top boxes, VoIP-Telephony, and PCs via cable or WLAN. The triple play scenario is complete with the hybrid telephone Gigaset C450 IP for fixed network and VoIP Telephony. This phone is just as easy to use as a traditional cordless phone and can be connected to the normal telephone line as well as to a LAN-connection on a router.

Interested visitors can experience the Siemens Gigaset products and scenarios live in Hall 9, Booth 90240.
