OPENTV DEVELOP IPTR TECHNOLOGY

OPENTV, the world’s leading interactive television and media solutions providers, have participated in the development of technology which will bring Sky’s Integrated Personal Television Recorder (IPTR) to market.
BSkyB customers will have available to them advanced interactive and personal TV services in one device.
OpenTV have developed a new multi-pipeline middleware for the recorder that includes extensions for the hard disc functionality and control of twin digital satellite tuners. It will allow viewers to simultaneously watch one digital satellite program while recording another.
OpenTV will also contribute approximately $8 million to the development of the market and to assist in the promotion and sales of the new product to UK consumers.
Sky’s Chief Operating Officer, Richard Freudenstein, said: “Sky pride themselves at being at the forefront of technology development, specifically when they deliver such substantial consumer benefits. The Integrated Personal Television Recorder is a truly 21st century home entertainment product. It will deliver all the existing advanced interactive and enhanced features Sky Digital customers love, plus offer the option for even greater choice and control over what they watch and when they watch it.”
The Integrated Personal Television Recorder is the culmination of development work done by Sky and their technology partners, NDS, NEC, OpenTV and Pace Micro Systems. (CD/SP)
