OpenTV and C-COR Offer Open Architecture Switched Digital Broadcast

OpenTV and C-COR introduced an open architecture switched digital video system that involves the integration of an interactive program guide based on OpenTV Core 2.0 Middleware running on Motorola's DCT-2000/2500 set-top boxes and C-COR's nABLE Global Session and Resource Manager (GSRM) providing the session and edge resource management.

The solution offers cable operators the ability to employ SDB on the Motorola box as well as any other set-top box on the market, freeing up bandwidth for other core competitive offerings such as high definition broadcasting and video-on-demand. Switched digital broadcasting enables instant bandwidth allocation for infrequently used channels, rather than the current means of allocating bandwidth to lesser used channels all the time.
