Pace Partners with Alticast


Pace Micro Technology plc will use Alticast's OpenCable Applications Platform-based middleware solution, the two vendors announced Thursday.

Alticast's “AltiCaptor OCAP 1.0” will be integrated into Pace set-tops, starting with the "Tahoe" dual-tuner HD digital-video-recorder box.

“Alticast is a global leader in OCAP and MHP [Multimedia Home Platform] deployments and the best partner for Pace's OCAP-development program,” Pace vice president of technology Chris Dinallo said in a prepared statement. “Together, we are on track to have the world's first high-definition DVR OCAP-compliant platform ready for deployment on existing networks.”
