Pace Micro Technology Americas announced its latest all-digital DVR, a dual-tuner SD-DVR called Vegas, designed specifically for MSOs with Motorola-type networks.
The Vegas box includes advanced connectivity, DOCSIS/DSG, and a processor powerful enough to support both current and future technology requirements. Vegas supports OCAP and has also been integrated with the latest electronic program guide (EPG) and VOD applications deployed in the market today.
The box is aimed at a specific niche Pace said is unserved: it is designed for SD subscribers in Motorola-based systems with analog and digital simulcast. Pace did not provide a specific price, but said Vegas will be about $100 less expensive than a dual analog/digital HD DVR.
In North America, Pace’s customers include a wide range of cable operators including Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, and Videotron – all Scientific-Atlanta networks.
