Pace DC550D Tango

Pace’s DC550D Tango HD set-top box introduces the latest advanced video technology in a feature rich and cost effective MPEG-4 / MPEG-2 HD box.

The DC550D’s embedded conditional access module enables operators to deploy a cost effective, secure video decryption solution. The cost and complexity of upgrading your network to use CableCARD™ is eliminated by using Pace’s embedded security set-top boxes.

The Tango set-top box provides cable operators a robust, secure platform for authorization entitlements, code download, billing system messages and signalling through an out of band messaging system.

The Tango platform runs native electronic program guide applications commonly found at today’s cable systems including VOD, or next generation applications.
