Vidiom Systems has established a new division that will focus squarely on integration and deployment of OCAP (OpenCable Application Platform) - a CableLabs-specified middleware - as well as enhanced and interactive television applications and IPTV services.
The unit, aptly dubbed the Integration and Deployment Group, is headed up by Jeff Berenson, who is serving in the also appropriately-named position of VP of Integration and Deployment.
The newly-created team will focus on a suite of services aimed to help operators define how OCAP and iTV affect their specific networks, develop network integrations, establish business processes and operational support systems, and actually roll out services.
Berenson has gained iTV experience with technology based on OCAP, MHP, OpenTV and Motorola technologies for operators such as Comcast Cable, Time Warner Cable, BSkyB, Premiere of Germany, UPC (now UGC), and BellSouth, among others.
He joins Vidiom following a career spanning companies such as OpenTV, Interactive Broadband Consulting, ITV Partners, and Bearing Point.
