Here's an interesting one. Conklin-Intracom -- known for its ability to deliver "next-generation content" via IPTV -- has apparently ordered up $1.6 million in IPTV set-top-boxes from Wegener. The order consists of a mixture of "Wegener's SMD-515 set tops and remote controls for IPTV services, including video-on-demand and integrated digital video recording." The aforementioned boxes support both MPEG-4 (H.264) and MPEG-2 decoding along with standard- and high-definition formats. The curious part, however, is the note that the STBs will be deployed "by several unnamed telco operators." Heck, we're not even told if said carriers are domestic or international. Still, we reckon secretive IPTV expansion is better than none at all.
