Path 1, S-A Form OEM Agreement for VOD

In a recent OEM and reseller agreement, Path 1 Network Technologies will supply Scientific-Atlanta with OEM versions of its Chameleon VidX product family, which migrates ASI interfaces to IP network systems. S-A, which has OEM and reseller rights to future Path 1 products, will also resell Path 1's Chameleon vidX Cx1000 Video over IP Gateway under the Path 1 brand name.

Since May 2002, S-A has sold an OEM version of Path 1's multiplexer products to Cable MSO's for VOD applications. Current products under the agreement include Path 1's demultiplexers, multiplexers and video-over-IP gateways.

The Chameleon vidX handles up to 1,024 streams of SD and HD VOD content, music and other data that can be multiplexed and demultiplexed for IP transport to existing digital cable set top boxes.
