NDS is Comcast's professional services partner

MUMBAI: NDS has been chosen by US entertainment service provider Comcast to be the prime integrator of the company’s tru2way software integration project that utilises the Cable Labs tru2way Reference Implementation (RI).

Under this agreement, NDS’ Professional Services Group will lead set-top box (STB) testing, code development and success validation for the integration of new tru2way applications and devices for Comcast.
NDS will provide Comcast with services that optimise the RI stack, enabling uniform and reliable porting to tru2way STBs. This will allow Comcast to run the same applications and services across multiple models of STBs, offering a consistent user experience for subscribers and providing the company with the freedom to use a variety of hardware platforms.

The NDS team will work to build the RI testing tool, implement the tests against the different STBs, develop code and assist in fixing any issues.

Comcast senior VP of advanced business and technology development Mark Hess says, “We are committed to the Cable Labs Reference Implementation and its deployment on tru2way devices. NDS has tremendous experience in working with video operators around the world and has proven their ability to offer reliable, timely and highly competent solutions as an integrations partner. We’re eager to begin our work together to enhance the RI, which will help advance the industry’s adoption of tru2way while also enabling us to bring our customers interactive services.” 
NDS VP, GM of professional services Stuart McGeechan says, “Our integration and professional services work has been recognised as dependable and effective in providing complex technical solutions to the US cable market. We are greatly looking forward to integrating the secure RI application into the Comcast portfolio, as this agreement further underlines our successful approach of bringing together best of breed products and solutions while cementing our position as a reliable and trusted ‘go to’ partner for North American cable companies.”
