The NDS team will maintain its role as the prime integrator for next-generation applications and services for such solutions as Cox’s Trio.
With the current agreement, the NDS professional services team has been responsible for the end-to-end management and implementation of Cox’s tru2way system, from the headend through to the set-top box components and has also managed third party developers to ensure consistency throughout the development process.
Moving forward the team will continue to maintain and deliver a consistent rollout of technology advancements and updates, extending the overall functionality of Cox’s applications and services on an ongoing basis.
As new requests from subscribers for additional capabilities grow, NDS will work closely with Cox to enhance the current features to address these requests across their system. Together, the companies have future-proofed the design of the IPG, guaranteeing that such enhancements can be made while maintaining the same consistency and ease-of-use throughout the overall viewing experience.
James Kelso, vice president for video engineering at Cox, said: “NDS has evolved into a truly integrated partner. Their global experience and expertise tied with their determination and dedication has been more than impressive. We teamed to launch the Trio guide, earning new patents and launching the market’s first multi-room DVR using the MoCA standard.”
Stuart McGeechan, vice president and general manager for professional services at NDS, said: “Working with the Cox team has been a great experience for NDS. We have been given the opportunity to develop and integrate many new standards and technologies into a comprehensive end-to-end solution for Cox’s next generation guide.”
Will the extension benefit NDS?
