DiscVision was established as a spin-off of the University of Paderborn. The focus of the company at that time was on the development of innovative solutions for the time-independent access to broadcast media. DiscVision was therefore one of the first companies that developed a PVR (Personal Video Recorder) in Germany for companies like Grundig and Siemens in Germany.

DiscVision had never own brands in the market but works as a hardware and software design house for major brands in the European and worldwide STB industry.

In depth know how is available about all aspects of STB system software and hardware and constantly updated by close cooperation with national and international R&D centers at Universities and research institutes. In this way, DiscVision is embedded in a network of innovative partner companies and R&D institutions that allows us to bring new concepts and ideas to the market since more than 15 years now.

DiscVision is a pioneering company and was first on the market in a number of areas such as:
