Microtune (www.microtune.com) has announced three new universal digital QAM cable tuners. Based on an integrated, sawless, tuner-plus-splitter architecture, the new Microtuner MT208X tuner family is designed to deliver superior digital video quality and reliability across global multi-tuner set-tops, including next-generation HD/DVR boxes, video hubs, digital cable gateways and home media servers. When built into CPE, the tuners are intended to enable cable operators to offer interactive, personalized video services such as HD, on-demand, time-shifted and downloaded video.

The new cable tuners will be featured in a multi-tuner design and demonstrated at Microtune's booth (525) at Expo. The company will also feature consumer-end products that showcase the leading edge in consumer cable equipment such as DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems, DOCSIS 3.0 wireless gateways, EMTAs, HD/DVR set-top boxes, video hubs, and digital cable set-top boxes.
