Rovi Corporation (formerly Macrovision Solutions Corporation), announced that Pace is using the Rovi Connected Platform solution to enhance its next-generation set-top boxes for cable operators and service providers throughout the Americas.
"We are committed to working with our customers in the service provider and cable markets to provide consumers with a cutting-edge entertainment experience that allows access to multiple types of digital media in the home," said Bruce Gureck, VP of product development, Pace. "The Rovi Connected Platform is a comprehensive solution that enables us to easily integrate with the latest interoperability standards that help to enable access to premium, recorded and personal content from a variety of locations and devices."
This announcement expands on an existing relationship between Rovi and Pace. In 2007, Pace and Rovi (then Macrovision) collaborated to demonstrate a multi-room digital home experience using Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) specifications. Pace added DLNA capabilities to its set-top box and server products by integrating Rovi's media player and media server software with existing Pace software to show how digital content could be accessed and viewed from any room in the home.
