SEACHANGE TO DEVELOP INTEGRATED VOD PLATFORM
NEW ORLEANS-Intertainer Inc. and SeaChange International Inc. have announced
an agreement to develop a collaborative end-to-end solution for operators
who want to deliver video-on-demand (VOD). The integration of Intertainer's
broadband network with SeaChange's ITV System will enable the Entertainment
On Demand service to run on Motorola's DCT-5000+ set-top box. The integration
will be facilitated by Microsoft TV Advanced, a client software for
advanced set-tops. Digital Video Arts (DVA), a subsidiary of SeaChange,
will be responsible for developing the integrated platform.
In addition, SeaChange and Intertainer will integrate the ITV service
into Motorola's entire range of set-top terminals.
