LG Earns CableLabs Certification for Two-Way Interactive Digital Cable HDTV

LG Electronics' plasma HDTV has achieved Certification status as OCAP-enabled interactive digital television set, including the multi-stream CableCARD (M-Card) system, from a recently concluded certification by CableLabs.

LG Electronics' 42-inch OpenCable plasma HDTV set features built-in OCAP technology, M-Card capabilities and interactive capabilities, as well as high-definition content and interactive services like Video-on-Demand and Pay-Per-View. The TV can connect directly to a local cable TV system, and receive current advanced interactive cable TV services, as well as be ready for future interactive applications -- without the need for a separate digital set-top box (STB).
