Dreaming of the Kaon KSF-S700H2

May 14, 2006

Just found out about a very exciting range of High Definition receivers waiting in the wings from Kaon.



A well-know brand, with a good name in the satellite industry, they have a range of five STB’s lined up for release at some time in the (hopefully) near future. One is a cable box, and one a purely terrestrial box, but the other three are very interesting to the satellite community.

The KSF-S700 is the ‘basic’ High Definition satellite receiver, but looks very well put together. The KTSF-S700 is an intriguing satellite and terrestrial combination machine, whilst the star of the show is surely the beautiful looking KSF-S700H2.

It’s not just a pretty face either. Under the bonnet lies a pair of twin satellite tuners and, wait for it, a PVR facility!

Here’s the basic spec:

– 2 Tuners PVR

– Compliant MPEG-4/H.264 & Fully DVB-S2 (High Definition)

– Simultaneous 6 Record and 1 playback

– Simultaneous Time-shifting & Dual Recording

– Dual Decoding from Live stream or Recorded stream (PIP: Picture-in-Picture)

– MP3(MPEG-1 Layer-3) Transfer & Play from Internet via USB 2.0

– RGB and YPbPr and S-Video and CVBS and HDMI video Outputs

– Powerful & Stable Trick mode

– USB 2.0 support for Fast transfer via PC

Oh yes, it has the USB socket to boot, if you’ll excuse the double entendre ;)

It supports full 1080 resolution, Dolby AC-3 and has the essential HDMI connector (although only one).
