At the CableLabs Summer Conference, SeaChange International (www.schange.com) demonstrated software solutions designed to enable operators to seamlessly capitalize on emergent interactive TV standards and existing VOD infrastructures. The EngageTV Validator, designed to guarantee quality of service for EBIF-based subscriber applications, made its debut. The company also featured its Watch & Buy T-commerce extension for on-demand services.

The EngageTV Validator is designed to enable the widespread development and deployment of EBIF applications, which can take effect when interactive elements available to viewers are linked to an appropriate VOD resource (video asset). The EngageTV Validator intercepts EBIF applications that contain external resources and verifies their availability, thereby guaranteeing the delivery of a consistent interactive experience.

The Watch & Buy T-commerce service is designed to enable cable operators to immediately use the on-demand tier to sell-through DVDs and related merchandise to subscribers while also establishing support for system-wide T-commerce applications. It includes a lightweight set-top application, user interface customization, and fully managed back-end order fulfillment.
