The collaboration will allow multiple end-users to receive real-time broadcast video content via an Internet Protocol (IP) transport. Switched digital video also provides end-users with interactive guides and menus for navigating the various capabilities of interactive TV, as well as video-on-demand.

FiberPath 400, announced last month at SuperComm 2001, is a next-generation voice, video and data platform that supports IP streaming video, up to 100 Mbps data speeds, hundreds of channels of digital and analog CATV, and carrier-class telephony service.

The companies collaborating on the switched digital video technology include Myrio, with its customer software, middleware and back-office software platforms; Harmonic, with its MPEG2 video over IP head-end; Hitachi, with its Hitachi GR2000 gigabit router; and Pace, with its DSL4000 Digital Home Gateway. Motorola also will be featured with its Streamaster multimedia set-top system.

These companies, along with Optical Solutions, are preparing for a demonstration of the new technology in conjunction with the OPASTCO industry conference, July 21-25 in Minneapolis.
