Less than two months after introducing its Media Pro advanced set-top box, Eagle Broadband Inc. has lassoed its first customer: General Dynamics Interactive.
Eagle unveiled the set-top in May. The box, which is Eagle's smallest and affordable model to date, offers access to the Internet at high-speed, e-mail correspondence and an MPEG-2 hardware decoder.
Although financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, the companies say that the agreement is part of the cooperative business agreement they signed last month. Eagle's etoolz subsidiary has completed the customization of the Media Pro for General Dynamics Interactive's Intrigue Multimedia System, an all-digital information and entertainment system designed to deliver high-speed Internet access, video-on-demand, games and music. As part of the agreement, Eagle will oversee the installation of fiber and copper cable in selected General Dynamics hotel projects in the United States. Eagle also will supply structured wiring for the hotel deployment of Intrigue.
The first installations are slated to begin in the next eight weeks.
Eagle is marketing the box to the hospitality, corporate, municipal and residential markets. General Dynamics Interactive is a General Dynamics Communication Systems' business.
