Samsung STMicroelectronics, and Metalink have a box for you: The box isn’t the first such deal announced by Metalink, but it’s with the leading set-top box maker and video decoder chipmaker. The 802.11n part would allow digital video at HD resolutions to stream around the home. The three companies demoed the box at CeBIT in Germany this week, a trade show. The set-top box would decode video directly from cable or satellite, and probably be capable of recording programs. Production should start in third quarter 2007; the boxes aren’t sold to consumers, but bundled by programming providers.
