Anaheim, Calif. - AT&T Broadband will buy 200,000 of Motorola's
DCT2500 digital set-top terminals in 2002.
The two companies unveiled the agreement at the Western
Cable Show on Thursday.
The DCT2500 is an evolution of Motorola's DCT2000 "core-interactive" digital set-top, offering expanded memory, added processing power, scaled video, and vertical blanking interval (VBI) data extraction.
Motorola said the DCT2500 is expected to be available
for shipment in mid-2002.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The deal comes on the heels of another pact between the two companies for Motorola to provide AT&T Broadband with digital set-tops loaded with AOLTV software.
