Demand for IP set-top boxes will reach 19 million units in 2010, up from 4.3 million in 2006, according to market researcher In-Stat.
In-Stat research has found:
- DVB-T tuners will be integrated into many boxes for Europe.
- More vendors are offering integrated home networking technologies.
- Component prices will decline, allowing the Bill of Materials (BOM) for an SD H.264 decode-capable box to drop from more than $100 in 2005 to $54 in 2010.
