Why would you think that? I'm not sure about what kind of
coding/decoding is done in digital TV, but I guess it involves lots of
mathematical operations and this is not exactly the strong point of
Erlang (or generally interpreted languages). As far as I know, even
the AXD301 uses the linked-in (i.e. written in C) megaco_flex_scanner
for performance reasons - and that's just text parsing, no expensive
mathematical operations.
