Pace announce Earlybird compatible home gateway

Pace Micro Technology has launched its Earlybird compatible home gateway (set-top box).
Earlybird, an end-to-end system for new satellite operators created by Tandberg Television and Irdeto Access, can now utilise Pace's CDTV.410 or DTVA to complete the solution for the delivery of television services into consumer homes.
Tandberg Television and Irdeto Access have developed Earlybird in response to a shift in the satellite market, which is seeing audiences fragment and niche broadcasting and local language platforms grow. As a result Earlybird is targeted at operators with between 20,000 and 100,000 subscribers and is designed to minimise start-up costs and time to market. The Pace CDTV.410 and DTVA complements this approach as a low-cost flexible home gateway that is already completely compatible with the Earlybird network infrastructure.
Patrick Rabu, VP business development for Pace EMEA and APAC, commented: "Earlybird takes on the challenge faced by smaller operators worldwide to rollout their services as fast as possible at a cost that is commercially realistic. Operators who choose the Earlybird route to market and select the Pace home gateway can be confident that they have made a cost and time efficient choice for their service deployment."
Roger Bolton, satellite solutions segment manager at Tandberg Television added: "Together Tandberg Television and Irdeto Access have designed a system that minimises the investment satellite operators must make to launch new services. The cost of the set-top box or home gateway is a significant part of the overall expenditure and Pace has addressed this in the design of its CDTV.410 and DTVA, making Pace a logical choice for the Earlybird system."
