Pace signed a deal to expand its two-year partnership with Brazil-based NET, a multi-service cable company in Latin America. Under the deal, Pace will develop new platforms to enable NET to deploy advanced digital services to its customers. Pace has also reached a milestone by shipping 1 million of its SD Zapper set-top boxes to NET.

With the extended partnership, NET will work with Pace to roll out three new platforms for 2011. These will include the SD set-top box, an HD interactive set-top box and an HD PVR. The platforms will support NET's transition to complete digital TV services for its subscribers through an HD interactive set-top box. The Pace design allows upgrading to PVR capabilities by simply inserting a hard disk drive into the existing device.

The solution integrates the Nagra conditional access system, OpenTV middleware and Teleidea EPG application. The HD set-top box family is fully interactive and supports VOD, HD 3D and interactive games.
