With the CableCARD transition looming, Pace Micro Technology is continuing to integrate its newest DVR-based set-tops with VOD systems from a variety of other suppliers. Pace’s most recent integration is with Tandberg Television.
Pace has integrated its Tahoe HD-DVR and its Vegas SD-DVR with TandbergTV’s OpenStream Digital Services Platform. The combination will allow operators to easily deploy on-demand services using VOD servers, applications, billing systems and other system components of their choice. TandbergTV said its system delivers on-demand streams to more than 80 U.S. markets reaching more than 15 million digital subscribers.
In February, Pace announced a similar integration with C-COR’s on-demand platform.
Both Pace boxes are available with CableCARD or embedded conditional access (CA), and can run either native applications or CableLabs OpenCable Applications Platform (OCAP). All of the Pace set-tops can run in either DOCSIS Signaling Gateway (DSG) or legacy out of band mode for network messaging.
