With a possible launch at CES, CableLabs appears poised to introduce Tru2way as the new moniker for the Open Cable Application Platform.

Name change or not, the OpenCable standard made serious headway in 2007 – first through overtures to the developer community like the “first, ever OCAP Developers’ Conference” at The Cable Show and the introduction of software developer kits (SDKs) like Motorola’s own, and then through public declarations of support from the CE front, including announcements from Intel and TiVo. Expect more OpenCable, or rather Tru2way, noise at CES. Perhaps some new apps? New operator deployments?
