Japanese MSO Taps Intellocity

Tomen Mediacom Inc., Japan's second-largest cable operator, has hired
Denver-based Intellocity USA Inc. to provide technical assistance for its
forthcoming interactive-television services.

To that end, Intellocity said it will assess and review Tomen Mediacom's
network infrastructure and determine what components and systems will be
necessary before the operator moves ahead with specific hardware and middleware

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Tomen Mediacom said it will be 'the first large cable operator' to pursue
interactive TV in Japan. Some satellite companies there have already launched
such services.

Among its other clients, Intellocity provides interactive-TV-consulting
services to AT&T Broadband.
