Dutch solutions provider Divitel chooses AirTies set-top boxes
to bolster IPTV offering in Europe
Istanbul, 01 July 2009 - AirTies, the innovative wireless home networking vendor has
today announced its strategic partnership with Dutch independent digital video solutions
provider and systems integrator, Divitel, to provide its core IP set-top box platform to
Divitel’s customer base of professional communication and media, enterprise and non-profit
making organisations in Europe. The partnership will also support AirTies’ expansion into the
IPTV market in Western Europe.
Divitel will deploy AirTies’ high definition, Air 7120, an easy-to-setup, flexible and cost-
effective IP set-top box with support for multicast video from live TV channels, Video-On-
Demand and Web applications. The Air 7120 model carries ample memory and storage
capacity for the most demanding and innovative interactive TV features. Its 2GB NAND flash
enables Divitel to offer Pause-Live TV functionality as a standard TV experience, whereas its
optional wireless capabilities allow audio and video transmission from the internet gateway
over Wi-Fi to the set-top box, whilst eliminating the need for cables.

and forward thinking partners to help us offer our customers pioneering and cutting-edge
technology at a competitive price. This is especially vital in the IPTV world and our
