STRONG MPEG4 Television Broadcast Compliant Set top boxes and DVRs
Strong has been proud to bring new technology to Australia, we were the first to bring MEPS (Minimum Energy Performance Standard) back in 2009. We also foresee the change and introduction of MPEG4 to Australia, way back in 2008 we introduced the SRT 5440, virtually every single digital video recorder and set top boxes are all MPEG4 compliant. It took longer than we envisioned, but in 2016 has now occurred.
So what does that mean to me?
This means that to be able to obtain new free to air High Definition channels you require a MPEG4 TV or Set top box
Aren't all TVs and set top boxes MPEG4?
Just because Strong offers this features in most of our current models, not all other brands of TV and set top boxes feature MPEG4 and only offer MPEG2. It will usually list this in the specifications section of your manual or perhaps you can check this online. Also if you own an older model of Strong Set top box or DVR it may not be MPEG4.
