Pace Announces MPEG-4 Set-Top Boxes for Cable

Pace Micro Technology introduced a new family of MPEG-4 advanced video compression set-top boxes for cable operators in North and South America. The new STBs support various video compression formats including MPEG-2 and MPEG-4, while enabling operators to deliver content via SDV (switched digital video), ADS (all digital simulcast) or a pure all-digital network. The gear offers embedded support for IP content delivery using DOCSIS channel bonding and support for "tru2way" (OCAP). Pace said it can ensure compatibility with existing networks, encryption, out of band signaling, VOD, SVOD, switched digital video, and billing systems.
