The article highlights the participation of a mix of 24 vendors and operators in an interoperability event for Open Cable Application Platform (OCAP). The platform is a CableLabs specified middleware for OpenCable hosts and a likely candidate for the forthcoming two-way Plug & Play agreement for set-top-free digital televisions. Among specifics, a version created by OCAP Development LLC, the joint venture of Time Warner Cable and Comcast, was demonstrated on a Scientific-Atlanta Explorer 3250 platform and the Osmosys OCAP stack was teamed with set-tops from Advanced Digital Broadcast.
