Cox Communications has set plans to evaluate Motorola’s OCAP middleware solution. The OCAP specification enables software developers to write applications that can run on any cable television system in North America, regardless of the hardware, provided it is OCAP enabled. Motorola's OCAP solution is based on the OCAP 1.0 and OCAP-DVR specifications, which allows operators to tap into the networking capabilities of the Motorola Follow Me TV platform. This will enable developers to take advantage of features such as linking set-tops and mobile devices and the sharing of tuners and storage across a home network. “Motorola's set-top platform is a critical piece of Cox's OCAP ecosystem and having their set-top platform ready for evaluation and testing will help us ensure a successful rollout,” said John Hildebrand, vice president of video technology engineering for Cox Communications.
