US regional cable MSO GCI is rolling out the Pace XG1 Multi-Tuner Video Gateway with TiVo on board, offering its customers linear TV, VOD and interactive content across multiple screens and devices.
A key part of GCI's plan was to offer subscribers a fully integrated, DOCSIS-capable hardware solution with video streaming to multiple connected devices in the home, it said. Pace's XG1 incorporates a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem supporting full IP connectivity.
"The Pace/TiVo solution offers our subscribers TiVo's award-winning user interface to access and discover VOD and linear TV content, together with personalised recommendations and powerful search and discovery capabilities," said Bob Ormberg, vice president of content and product development at GCI. It also offers total platform flexibility for software development and service enhancements from our trusted and longstanding CPE partner, Pace."
Tim O'Loughlin, president of Pace Americas, added: "Over the course of our seven-plus year partnership with GCI, we have been fortunate to launch multiple new technologies in the Alaska market. GCI is the first on a long list of service providers planning deployments of our solution this year. The reception by subscribers and the industry of this joint product initiative has been incredible."
