Alticast has announced its significant role in helping the Canadian cable television giant Videotron rollout its next generation of set-top boxes (STB).
Alticast’s team of veteran engineers was responsible for developing much of the critical software for the X8′s multi-room PVR capabilities and interactive applications. The development, integration and test teams worked closely with Videotron and its STB suppliers to ensure that the X8 performs seamlessly with Videotron’s back-office systems.
“Videotron has a well-deserved reputation for excellence and with their new X8 set-top box it is clear that they are committed to keeping their illico interactive TV service on the leading edge of innovation,” says John Carlucci, CTO, Alticast US. “This project not only demonstrates Videotron’s commitment to its subscribers, it demonstrates the capabilities of our engineers and their ability to solve operators’ most demanding software development needs.”
