Emuse Modelstream, an authoring tool for interactive television, has been integrated with NDS Mediahighway to provide a comprehensive solution for MHP or OCAP development.

The combination of Modelstream with the Mediahighway Development Kit Advanced enables developers to create, edit, test and debug interactive TV applications for MHP and OCAP based set-top boxes and digital televisions.

Emuse Modelstream allows designers and other non-technical staff to develop interactive applications, while the NDS Mediahighway development environment provides facilities for simulating and testing all aspects of a set-top box from a single personal computer.

The combined solution will be shown at the IBC show in Amsterdam.

“We are pleased to have this opportunity to demonstrate the integration of Modelstream and Mediahighway at IBC this year”, said Dominic Laval of Emuse Technologies, “The two products working together will now enable developers to build a total end to end MHP/OCAP solution.”

“MHDK Advanced is already backed by a wide community of users,” said Caroline Le Bigot, of NDS France. “This new version combines the best of Modelstream and MHDK tools and offers to MHP and OCAP developers an easy and proven way to produce interactive TV applications.”

Emuse Technologies is based in Dublin. NDS is a majority-owned subsidiary of News Corporation.
