Pace to preview Whole Home Solution

Digital TV and broadband technologies company Pace will preview its multiscreen Whole Home solution at IBC.

The platform lets service providers distribute linear pay TV services and on-demand content to connected set-top boxes, tablets, smartphones, games consoles and connected TVs in the home.

Pace said the pre-integrated Whole Home hardware and software solution lets pay TV and broadband providers extend their content reach while delivering an experience that engages subscribers with more screens and longer viewing.

The Pace Elements software platform includes content protection with Titanium’s Unified Rights Management, Tungsten’s open standards-based device software, Helium’s gateway software that connects and distributes broadband media services around the home, and Cobalt’s Service Delivery Platform for interactive, personal and customisable services.

It also uses Oxygen’s customisable user interface and Elements Framework and SDKs so operators can develop apps and services, and is integrated with Pace’s ECO Service Management platform.

“Subscribers want TV technology that simply works, is invisible and instant, with an intuitive and consistent user experience across multiple devices. Discovery, playback, pause and resume should be effortless. Operators need technology platforms that are standards-based, flexible and free from vendor lock-in; that can quickly and easily be integrated into existing pay TV head-ends with minimal disruption,” said Pace International president, Shane McCarthy.

At IBC Pace said it is also launching an enhanced version of its ECO Service Management platform, designed to optimise and simplify the delivery and management of triple-play and connected home services.

It offers support for multi-vendor hardware and software networks, comprising remote configuration, trouble-shooting, device management and customer analytics to reduce opex and capex costs and improve the subscriber experience.

Pace will exhibit at IBC at stand B19, Hall 1.
