Thomson announced it has been chosen by leading Portuguese pay-TV operator, TV Cabo, for the rollout of a new High Definition (HD) cable set-top box with integrated Personal Video Recorder (PVR) and wireless voice-enabled cable modem. The new product has already generated significant interest within the operator community with TV Cabo set to deploy in the first half of 2007. The announcement underpins Thomson’s commitment to broaden its media and entertainment product offering and partnerships by developing products and services that enable innovative new technologies such as HDTV and integrated triple play.

TV Cabo, a subsidiary of PT Multimedia and Portugal’s leading cable and satellite operator with over 1.4 million customers, will deploy the DCI8200 in 2007 along with its satellite version without modem, the DSI8200, and other entry-level products provided by Thomson as part of the ongoing digitization of its network. Without a free-to-air digital TV service in Portugal, TV Cabo has been a major force in the ongoing adoption of digital TV in the country. The new platform will play a key part in the next phase of its modernization project—being a prime mover in the adoption of high definition TV and new services such as PVR and video on demand.
