EchoStar signs for tru2way
August 14, 2008
This agreement grants EchoStar the rights required to implement OpenCable Application Platform (OCAP) middleware and the CableCARD interface on devices using tru2way technology, allowing users to take full advantage of two-way, interactive cable services.
Tru2way is a national software platform that enables cable’s interactive services to be delivered to two-way plug and play TVs, set-top boxes, and other devices. Tru2way also creates a national footprint for the creators of interactive services to develop products that work on cable systems in nearly every US market. Major cable operators have committed to support the tru2way platform on systems covering more than 90 million US homes by the end of 2008
