Gemstar-TV Guide Does Java


Gemstar-TV Guide International Inc. will debut its new Java based interactive-programming-guide solution for OpenCable Application Platform during the National Show.

The company said its “j-Guide” -- which will run on a broad range of advanced digital set-tops and cable-ready TVs -- will offer a richer user interface with enhanced graphics and navigation capabilities.

Gemstar-TV Guide added that the first release of j-Guide, targeted for consumer-electronics devices that support OCAP and two-way CableCARDs, is planned for late summer, with the full feature IPG set to debut in 2007.
