Pace Develops OCAP-Based DVR System

Pace says the new DVR system complies with the OCAP DVR tech specification that CableLabs recently drafted. The set-top box vendor plans to demonstrate the system at next week's SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Denver.
Alticast, an OCAP middleware supplier, teamed with Pace to develop the DVR system for the manufacturer's digital cable set-tops. The Pace boxes feature Alticast's OCAP solution, AltiCaptor OCAP 1.0.
Pace says it will use the new CableLabs spec in all current and future OCAP-based DVR set-tops, starting with its flagship Tahoe TDC775. The Tahoe box is a digital set-top with dual tuners that supports DVR and high-definition service.
