Microsoft intros TV Foundation for cable operators

Microsoft, in a debut at the National Show in Chicago, unveiled the Microsoft TV Foundation Edition, a new digital TV software platform designed to help cable operators get more value from on-demand and other digital TV services using the hardware and network infrastructure they have in place today.



With the Microsoft TV Foundation, operators can create On-Demand Storefronts for video, and offer games and information services including news, weather and sports

Microsoft TV Foundation enables network operators to better package and promote services such as VOD, while helping viewers easily find and use the services with a built-in interactive program guide (IPG). Operators can create On-Demand Storefronts for video, and offer games and information services including news, weather and sports.

The Microsoft TV Foundation platform scales from today’s thin-client set-top boxes to future-generation devices, providing a consistent consumer experience for cable operators to promote services as their digital TV offering evolves.

Several companies announced support for TV Foundation. They include Advanced Digital Broadcast (ADB), Concurrent Computer, MetaTV, Motorola, SeaChange and Two Way TV.
