ANT Ships Millionth Browser

CAMBRIDGE -- ANT plc (AIM: ANTP), the market leading provider of software and solutions for the IPTV, hybrid TV and consumer electronics industries, today announced that Pace Micro Technology has shipped its one millionth set-top box (STB) with the ANT Fresco® browser providing an enhanced user experience and access to interactive digital TV. Pace has deployed STBs with Fresco in a range of set-top boxes with tier one operators worldwide.

Fresco is the industry-proven, de facto IPTV browser standard, deployed globally by leading IPTV and hybrid service providers. Fresco enables operators to cost-effectively and reliably deliver interactive digital TV through consistent and fast presentation of core user interface functionality such as EPGs (electronic programming guides), VoD (video on demand) and on-screen menus.

"The sheer volume of set-top boxes we have deployed with ANT Fresco is a testament to the browser's enhanced user experience – which meets the demands of today's complex TV-based applications," said Mark Rooney, Group Account Director at Pace Micro Technology. "Fresco is pre-integrated with such a wide range of middleware and silicon solutions that we can deliver a Fresco-enabled box knowing it will be reliable and consistent in the presentation of content to subscribers."
