MUMBAI: Hathway Cable & Datacom has awarded two contracts to Technicolor for MediaAccess gateways and MediaPlay set-top boxes. The solution is set to enhance Hathway‘s digital cable offering by enabling the delivery of HD video content and ultra-high speed broadband services to end users.

MediaAccess TCM471 features multiple channels aggregation (channel bonding) to maximise the performance over newly deployed cable infrastructure on DOCSIS 3.0, while remaining backward compatible with older networks. With the help of its innovative tuner management, it combines efficiently video over cable, video over IP and high-speed broadband services.

MediaPlay DCI804 is a high-end DVR decoder delivering HD MPEG-4 video. Hathway leverages Technicolor‘s field-proven maturity with this platform to deliver robust HD video, DVR and Time-shifting services to its consumers.

Technicolor president of connected home Michel Rahier said, "The new partnership with Hathway is a key milestone for Technicolor in the APAC region and contributes to reinforce our positions on this fast growing market."

"We are excited about this partnership with Technicolor, a worldwide leader in gateways and set-top boxes. Hathway firmly believes in bringing the best of technology and quality to its customers. With Technicolor‘s products, we believe that we will be able to take digitisation of our networks to the next stage and deliver more value to our customers in India," said Hathway Cable & Datacom MD & CEO Jagdish Kumar.
