Pace wins set-top business for Dutch roll-out

LONDON — UnitedGlobalCom has chosen Pace Micro Technology (Saltaire, UK) as one of its suppliers of set-top boxes as part of its plans for an accelerated rollout of digital television to UPC Broadband`s analogue cable subscribers in the Netherlands.

In the fourth quarter of 2005 , UPC Broadband, a division of UGC, expects to deploy over 2 million digital set-top boxes with related middleware, security and conditional access systems to accelerate the growth of digital television in the Dutch market.

John Dyson, Chief Executive at Pace Micro Technology, said, “UGC has chosen our DC621 set-top box for the initial roll-out. With its built in Euro-DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem this is the perfect solution for the digital home, where demand is growing for the right mix of quality television and high-speed internet access, together with interactive services, such as video on demand (VOD).”
