Tru2way will be among the featured technologies at next week’s The Cable Show ’08 in New Orleans and Zodiac Interactive will be displaying its tru2way applications at the show.

In CableNET 2008, which is co-sponsored by CableLabs and the NCTA (National Cable & Telecommunications Association), Zodiac will display its tru2way  framework, called PowerUp, that enables TV applications such as local restaurant search, click-to-call, multi-player games, photo sharing, weather, traffic, sports scores, and local news.

These demonstrations can also be found across The Cable Show's exhibit floor in Zodiac's partner booths, including Advanced Digital Broadcast, which will demonstrate multiple tru2way platforms, Alticast, Motorola and Thomson.

"We're excited that so many leading tru2way companies have recognized Zodiac applications in tru2way," said Michael Rivkin, Zodiac's CEO. "Zodiac espouses the central tenant of tru2way, which allows for portability across multiple devices and stacks.  We have been able to easily make our applications available to multiple set-top boxes and stack vendors, and have proven the platform's basic principle to build once and easily deploy across multiple platforms."

Zodiac will also demonstrate its PowerRamp which is similar to Cox’s On Ramp to OCAP, platform and middleware product at the show.
