19 mln units set-top IP boxes to ship by 2010

Driven by increasing Telco TV deployments, demand for IP set top boxes is growing, and will reach 19 mln units in 2010, up from 4.3 mln in 2006, reports In-Stat. Component prices will decline, allowing the Bill of Materials (BOM) for an SD H.264 decode-capable box to drop from over $100 in 2005 to $54 in 2010.
