Visiware fires up OCAP games
Visiware said it has ported a catalog-full of its interactive TV games to OCAP (OpenCable Applications Platform), a CableLabs-specified middleware for OpenCable-based set-tops and digital televisions.
Visiware said it has ported three iTV channels (Playin'TV, Playin'Casino and Playin'Star) to OCAP. The company is also participating in the JavaOne OCAP Application Development Contest.
Visiware also makes applications and games for other middleware platforms, including those made by OpenTV and NDS Group. Most of Visiware's deployments are international, but the company does offer games through EchoStar Communications.
