Australian broadcaster rolls out interactive viewing technology

Imagine sports fans huddled around their home television with an unprecedented degree of control over what they watch.

FOXTEL is using Pace’s DS420 and DC420 digital cable and satellite set-top units.

Imagine what it would be like for viewers to contravene the orders of a director to his TV and instead choose a shot more to their liking.

That’s exactly what will be possible when FOXTEL, an Australian subscription-television provider, completes its roll out of new set-top boxes from Pace Micro Technology. Available for cable and satellite platforms, FOXTEL Digital is poised to become the most advanced interactive digital TV platform in the Asia Pacific region.

FOXTEL is using Pace’s DS420 and DC420 digital cable and satellite set-top units. Based on Pace’s common hardware platform, both products feature NDS’s Videoguard conditional access (CA), Open TV Core 1.1 and high-speed PSTN modems. The broadcaster will deliver a totally new television experience to Australian viewers, offering an unparalleled choice of innovative digital TV services and interactive applications including different camera-angle choices for sports events and Near-Video-on-Demand (NVoD) movie services.
