OpenTV and Scientific-Atlanta today announced the signing of a five-year licensing and porting agreement for OpenTV’s interactive television middleware products.

At the same time, OpenTV extended its application developers agreement with Scientific-Atlanta for its ProSync interactive television service.

Under the agreement, Scientific-Atlanta will be able to offer network operators worldwide a wide range of digital receivers that will be fully integrated and tested with OpenTV’s Core 1.1 middleware running on top of Scientific-Atlanta’s Explorer platform. The initial port on the Explorer 4200DVB has completed OpenTV’s VTS certification process. The Explorer 4200DVB is a DVB-C receiver which supports PAL, DVB and EuroDOCSIS standards.

“We are thrilled to add Scientific-Atlanta to our growing list of OpenTV licensees,” said Jim Chiddix, chairman and CEO of OpenTV. “This licensing agreement will create new opportunities for both companies by making it easier for operators to quickly deploy a state-of-the-art iTV solution, comprised of hardware and software that has already been tested to reliably work together.”

“We are looking forward to being able to offer OpenTV’s middleware running on top of our Explorer platform to our customers throughout the world,” said Ken Klaer, vice president and general manager, International, Subscriber Network Systems at Scientific-Atlanta. “Scientific-Atlanta is committed to delivering an exceptional digital television experience for its customers, and we’re proud to be able to include OpenTV as one of our interactive television partners.”
