Vidiom Systems Corp. has opened a new training center dedicated to OCAP (OpenCable Application Platform) and other interactive television technologies at the company's Broomfield, Colo. headquarters.
The center will host instructor-led courses designed for cable operators, CE manufacturers and iTV players. The center also sports a range of interactive workstations equipped with application development tools, set-top boxes and connections to multiple types of headends.
Among courses, Vidiom will offer a slate of OCAP courses, including its OCAP API Essentials class and its OCAP Application Developer's Workshop, a five-day course scheduled to kick off in October. Later this year, the company will add Java courses tailored to the cable industry and embedded systems, as well as other OCAP-centric courses.
OCAP API Essentials will be the first class offered at the center from Sept. 13-15.
