Pace unveils future of Digital TV
Never mind your horoscope. Pace will reveal the future of digital TV when it demonstrates its home networking technology for the first time at IBC 2000. Pace will show the world's first demonstration of its latest home networking technologies, the Gateway Expander, pcConnect and tvConnect.
Pace has taken the set-top box a step further and created a gateway to the networked home, where consumer devices and services interact with each other and the outside world. The Gateway Expander will extend the reach of the home gateway to all corners of the household, enabling two-way communication from the broadband network outside the home, to peripheral electronic devices connected internally to the home network.
The PC will be one of the first to be connected. A wireless link from the Gateway Expander to Pace's pcConnect, will provide high-speed access to the internet via the home gateway's integrated cable, DSL or other broadband modem.
