SALTAIRE, U.K. -- Pace plc, the leading developer of digital TV technologies for the payTV industry, today launched a new set-top box platform using Microsoft’s Mediaroom IPTV software. Pace’s world-class engineering team has developed the customisable platform to enable operators to quickly and easily roll out IPTV, hybrid broadcast/broadband and OTT (over-the-top) services.

Pace develops bespoke IP technologies for major payTV operators across the globe, including CANAL+ in France and Viasat in Scandinavia and the Baltics. Pace’s Mediaroom-specific credentials include a long relationship with BT; in January 2007, Pace developed the first set-top box for the BT Vision service and in 2009 Pace launched the Vision+, a high-end, hybrid personal video recorder, combining broadcast and broadband digital TV services.

“We continue to lead the industry in developing converged solutions that help payTV operators to deliver compelling, accessible and innovative services, and to share payTV content around the home,” said Oliver Thivolet, Chief Technical Engineer at Pace. “Pace’s expertise is in bringing together software (including middleware and applications), conditional access and cutting edge hardware in a service-ready, high-quality, stable product.”

From The Founder
Ngena's global 'network of networks' solves a problem that the telecom vendors promised us would never exist. That doesn't mean its new service isn't a really good idea.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
