Pace Nets Minerva Approval

U.K.-based set-top maker Pace said its IP set-tops, including its whole-home DVR platform, have obtained certification for Minerva’s middleware platform.

Pace said its IPH8000M IPTV STB, IPH8005M HD-DVR, and combined Whole Home DVR solution have now been certified with the Minerva iTVFusion client. Pace’s IPH8000M  is a non-DVR box that supports multiple wired connectivity options including Ethernet and HomePNA over coax. The IPH8005M is an HD-DVR that supports a field-removable DVR hard drive that can be swapped out in order to reduce service costs and simplify logistics when servicing customer returns.

More than 300 operators worldwide have deployed Minerva’s software platform, according to the middleware supplier.
