S3 Group has successfully completed testing Pace Plc’s set-top box platform, which uses Microsoft’s Mediaroom IPTV software.

The platform, which was launched in March, allows operators to roll out IPTV, hybrid broadcast/broadband and OTT (over-the-top) services.

S3 Group has increased its capacity to test Mediaroom STBs for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), allowing solutions to come to market faster.

Microsoft Mediaroom is believed to be the most widely deployed IPTV platform in the world.

It delivers IPTV to 4 million subscriber households and supports features such as instant channel zapping, HD VoD, whole home DVR, remote recording and rich interactive TV applications.

Olivier Thivolet, Pace Plc’s Chief Technical Engineer, said: ”By testing Pace’s Mediaroom STB platform to rigorous standards, S3 Group has played an important role in enabling us to bring a service-ready, high-quality, stable product to market faster.”
