Sagemcom announces the launch of its new IP/DVB-T2 Ultra HD Set-top Box, based on the BCM72180, a 24k DMIPS quad core SoC from Broadcom, with embedded Wi-Fi 6 and support of AV1 decoding, for TIM.
The device gives access to the complete entertainment service offer from TIM, with TIMVISION, TIMMUSIC, TIMGAMES and Dazn, as well as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, YouTube and much more…
The product includes a DVB-T2 tuner for connection to an aerial to receive Digital Terrestrial Television, for free-to-air channels and Nagravision encrypted programs.
Thanks to its powerful embedded Wi-Fi 6, all IP content can be received over Wi-Fi by the unit, thus allowing a free placement within the household, without any wired connection to the Internet box. The Bluetooth remote control with embedded microphones allows the subscriber to perform voice search to access the contents.

We are proud to launch such a groundbreaking set-top box with TIM, leveraging Sagemcom in-house industrial set-up », said Olivier Taravel, Senior Executive Vice President, Audio Video Solutions Business Unit, Sagemcom.
