Australia’s Foxtel will use Pace Micro Technology plc set-tops for its new digital-TV service, the vendor said Monday.

Foxtel Digital -- which will be available via both cable and satellite -- will use Pace’s “DC420” and “DS420” units, respectively.

Both set-tops feature NDS Group plc's “VideoGuard” conditional access, OpenTV Corp.’s “Core 1.1” middleware and high-speed public-switched-telephone-network modems.
