TVGateway, Concurrent Synch Up


Interactive-programming-guide consortium TVGateway LLC has completed an
integration effort to bring its IPG to Concurrent Computer Corp.'s
video-on-demand platform.

The updated TVGateway IPG, which sports improved graphics and added search
features, can now ride on the Concurrent VOD platform. It has also been
certified by Motorola Inc.'s Acadia Labs applications test bed.

Improvements to the TVGateway IPG include an expanded 72-hour program
listing, an on-screen index page, a page-caching addition to provide fast access
to listings and a surfing feature that lets users scan through the listings by
specific time slots.

It also adds a concert-video service from Music Choice with better
pay-per-view ordering and schedules.

TVGateway is a joint venture of MSOs Adelphia Communications Corp., Charter
Communications Inc., Comcast Corp. and Cox Communications Inc. and
interactive-TV provider WorldGate Communications Inc.
