Thomson: VoIP/IPTV and a new STB coming

At the Broadband World Forum Europe, Thomson became the latest passenger on the convergence wagon by offering a new product that combines VoIP and IPTV. The company is also unveiling a next generation IP set-box in this quarter--no details yet. Finally, the company said it is adding high definition sound to its home gateway products (BT is a gateway customer of Thomson's). The new gateway will enhance services like Internet Radio and will cost up to €70 per box.
