More about IPTV Decoders

An IPTV decoder is an electronic circuit that decodes digital video and audio from a video encoder and converts the stream to uncompressed formats compatible with traditional television and video displays. Applications where various types of video displays are used to view video content over a network, will necessitate the use of an IPTV decoder. This can include flat panel monitors, LED video walls, video projectors, and consumer TVs.
