PACE AND OPENTV SIGN AGREEMENT

PACE MICRO Technology, one of the world’s largest developers of digital home gateway technology, and OpenTV one of the world’s leading interactive television and media solutions company, have signed an agreement to jointly develop high-end digital cable technology worldwide.
Pace will port OpenTV’s industry leading broadband offering onto their advanced Di4000 cable home gateway.
OpenTV’s broadband portfolio includes their interactive TV Middleware, EN2, integrated with Device Mosaic?, a standards-based HTML browser specifically developed for the TV market and already deployed in more than seven million television receivers world-wide.
OpenTV’s EN2 Middleware enables full two-way connectivity between a network operator and the viewer’s set-top box. EN2 has been selected by eight broadband cable TV networks world-wide. Device Mosaic? enables Internet on TV and allows system operators and/or their developers to produce simple iTV applications in HTML that can be delivered either over the open Internet or in an Intranet-based Walled Garden.
The Pace Di4000 offers cable operators the ability to provide many advanced interactive TV services, including video on demand, high-speed Internet service, and Voice over IP (VoIP). The Di4000 represents the latest broadband generation of Pace’s successful Di1000/2000 product series, as deployed in the UK by NTL and Telewest.
“Pace is leveraging its proven OpenTV expertise by porting OpenTV’s broadband technology onto Pace’s Di4000 - the world-leading cable home gateway.
Pace and OpenTV have worked together since 1996, creating home gateway solutions for network operators and broadcasters worldwide. Open TV also utilises Pace home gateway technology for its OpenTV Target Decoder, the programming reference for OpenTV developers worldwide. (CD)
