WorldGate, Motorola extend iTV partnership
Building on its three-year relationship with Motorola Inc., WorldGate Communications Inc. has signed a multi-year deal with Motorola's Horizon Developer Program.
As part of this latest deal, Motorola and WorldGate will continue to work together to develop WorldGate's interactive television service on Motorola's advanced digital set-top boxes, including the DCT1000, DCT2000, DCT2500 and the DCT5100.
As a member of the Horizon Developer Program, WorldGate has already achieved validation for 22 separate releases of its iTV products and applications. WorldGate has launched its interactive products in more than 65 cable systems in more than 12 countries.
ACADIA validation is designed to act as a benchmark for operators choosing software, content and applications. The Application Integration Center is a Motorola subsidiary and is the facility for the Horizon Developer Program. The center is intended to supply the expertise and resources to take a prototype to deployment.
