Pace, a global developer of technologies and products for pay-TV and broadband service providers, has announced that its Elements middleware platform is now available with full RDK compatibility. Elements is based on open source components and supports the design, delivery and management of digital content and services into and around the home.
Having shipped over 3 million RDK compliant devices in the US alone, Pace is now actively working with other RDK partners and operators in deploying, trialing and developing solutions in the Americas and around the world. The company is planning to expand into DVB markets with RDK product deployments in partnership with other major MSOs such as Liberty Global.
Pace also expanded its relationship with RDK Management by signing up to the RDK Advanced Support Program (ASP) and Media Sponsorship Program (MSP). The RDK Advanced Support Program provides access to a suite of development tools, testing platforms, advanced training, testing frameworks, and more. The MSP enables enhanced communications between Pace, RDK Management, and the other RDK stakeholders.
Jonathan Cobb, President of Pace Software & Services, added, “Pace is in a unique position to deliver and advise operators on RDK compatible hardware, software and also the necessary system integration to wrap everything into a single solution. Our unrivalled experience helps operators around the world deploy RDK-based solutions to create cost-effective and compelling video delivery solutions. We will continue to build momentum behind the RDK program as more Pace devices with Pace’s RDK compatible Elements middleware deploy globally.”
