Pace, Alticast team on OCAP-based DVR platform
Pace said the entrant adheres to the newly-developed OCAP DVR spec (0C-SP-OCAP-I02).
The set-top box maker built the system in partnership with Alticast , which has integrated its AltiCaptor OCAP 1.0 middleware with Pace boxes. Pace plans to show off the combo at next week's SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Denver.
Pace said it will apply the spec to all current and future OCAP-based DVR set-tops, starting with the Tahoe TDC775, a digital box that supports dual-tuners and high-definition television.
"We are on track to have a leading high-definition DVR OCAP-based platform for operators to make the transition to OCAP," said Pace VP of Technology Chris Dinallo, in a statement.
In January, several major U.S. MSOs disclosed significant rollout plans for OCAP  at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
