In's Digit-2000 system has been designed to ensure ready integration of new TV and audio standards with existing hardware concepts. This means that a MAC decoder based on the Digit-2000 system is readily installed into an existing TV set as an upgrade. Provided the necessary control software is available, it is, of course, also possible to use the relevant chip set in a stand-alone application, which is of particular interest to the many thousands of viewers who own satellite-TV receiving equipment.
