Pace integrates Tahoe, Vegas models with C-COR VOD platform
Pace Micro Technology said it has successfully integrated its new "Tahoe" and "Vegas" set-tops with C-COR Inc.'s On Demand platform, which is comprised of the company's n5 and n5C servers and nABLE backoffice system.
The next vendor likely to be on Pace's VOD integration list is Tandberg Television, maker of the OpenStream backoffice system.
"Integrating with three of the four major VOD vendors is important, so cable operators know that our set-top boxes work seamlessly with any or all of the VOD vendors they choose," said Pace Manager-Program Deployments Jason Hill, in a statement. "We have previously ported VOD and EPG applications on other Pace boxes in our family of products, and now we are on track to have the final VOD port on our newest boxes completed in late Q2 2007."
Pace's Tahoe TDC775 HD-DVR sports two tuners, as well as DOCSIS Set-top Gateway (DSG) and high-definition television capabilities. Its Vegas box (TDC575 SD-DVR) is an all-digital, dual-tuner standard-definition box with an on-board DVR.
In North America, Pace's cable partners include Comcast Cable, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks and Videotron.
