Collette Joins Ucentric as CEO


Former OpenTV Corp. marketing executive Michael Collette is taking the CEO
reins at Ucentric Systems, which provides software for on-demand delivery of
entertainment services.

Software for personal-video-recorder services is one of Ucentric's chief
products, which would allow even thin-client set-tops in subscribers' homes to
share PVR functionality.

Ucentric is backed by Polaris Venture Partners and Pilot House Ventures Group
LLC, the latter formed by former Continental Cablevision Inc. executives led by
Amos Hostetter.

The vendor is based in Maynard, Mass.
