Pace, a leading global developer of advanced technologies for service providers, have announced the latest deployment resulting from its global, strategic partnership with TiVo. One of the largest US cable operators, Mediacom Communications Corporation, has chosen to deploy the Pace MG1 Multi-tuner Media Gateway with TiVo’s Advanced User Interface (UI) as its flagship platform.
Mediacom will begin the roll out this month of Pace’s MG1 across their footprint, including their largest markets in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Georgia, and Florida. This deployment marks the latest in a longstanding partnership between the two companies dating back to 2006 with the initial shipment of Pace set-top boxes to Mediacom. A key consideration in Mediacom’s selection of the Pace platform was its ability to offer an integrated Whole Home DVR solution.
According to JR Walden, SVP Technology at Mediacom, “We’re confident that in combining TiVo’s feature-rich UI with Pace’s cutting-edge Media Gateway, we have a winning combination for our subscribers that offers a great linear TV experience alongside IP content on multiple devices around the home. We know we’ve made a great choice in selecting Pace as a partner for this product.”
“We’re delighted with the traction that the Pace and TiVo joint offering is having with our service provider customers and their subscribers,” says Tim O’Loughlin, President of Pace Americas . “Operators want to deliver the very best customer experience in today’s competitive marketplace, and the MG1 provides just that: a versatile, high-performance hybrid QAM/IP platform. Pace has been fortunate to be able to partner with Mediacom for a number of years, and this new development only serves to strengthen that relationship.”
