Ambit Microsystems, a developer of wired and wireless broadband communications, has selected the Alticast tru2way platform middleware solution, AltiCaptor, for their digital cable set-top boxes.

"We believe Alticast's experience and dedication to the tru2way platform aligns with our vision to help service providers fully take advantage of innovative new technologies for the subscriber," also said Cangelosi.
Ambit is working with Alticast to initially bring two cable receivers to market. The first model will be a single-tuner, standard-definition device that will support the latest OpenCable specifications. And as the demand for HD-DVR services grows, Ambit will also said it will deliver a high-performance, dual-tuner, HD-DVR cable receiver later in the year.
"Alticast is excited about Ambit's commitment to providing tru2way-compatible devices to the North American market," said Jeffrey Bonin, General Manager of Alticast.
