A comprehensive family of system-level software products are compatible with Microsoft TV, suitable for manufacturers that are designing and building set-top boxes. Microsoft TV is a Windows CE-based software platform for the set-top box market. Microsoft TV Product Adaptation Kit (Microsoft TVPAK), the client/server platform comprising Microsoft TV (the client solution) and Microsoft TV Server (the server solution), combines the benefits of the WebTV client user experience, head-end Windows 2000 server features, and the robust open architecture of the Windows CE operating system. Microsoft TV complies with standards like ATVEF, ATSC, and DVB and provides an advanced way to distribute interactive services to the television, such as video-on-demand (VOD), creating better TV for the viewer.

The company's complete line of integration software, device drivers, and turnkey stration/design systems have all been ported to the Microsoft TV platform. The company is one of Microsoft's systems integrators with a focus on and experience with all aspects of Microsoft TV set-top box integration -- from core device drivers to hardware adaptation layer implementation to Microsoft TV browser extensions; and value-added multimedia applications such as MPEG-2 encoding/decoding, DVD, and custom Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) solutions.
