Stewart, I have no intention of getting involved in terminology wars.
If you can quote your sources of reference for the information given
below  then I may be prepared to agree with you. However, the CCIR who are
the international standards setting body DECODE an analogue video signal
into digital and ENCODE a digital signal into analogue video.

If you want chips for a set top box to receive digital video transmissions
you look for Encoder Chips.
