Sundtek is a German manufacturer/software engineering company which provides USB Touchpanel solutions, and analog and digital TV Products.

Sundtek provides their own, closed source, commercially bundled framework and drivers for DVB and V4L.They state that their solution has support for both the S2-API as well as the Legacy DVBv3 API and Video4Linux1/2, and that they have a very high backward compatibility and provide for very easy installation because of independence from kernel drivers. Their installer currently has support for x86-32bit, x86-64bit, PowerPC and ARM (eabi4)

Apparently they use a user space application to emulate the API that usually is provided by the v4l and dvb framework by using the kernel's USBFS interface.

They also provide a bundled video player with channel scanning ability which supports H264/AAC as well as multiple character sets.

Sundtek claims to adhere to the LinuxDVB, Video4Linux1/2 API Specifications as far as possible.
