Motorola gets official with its tru2way toolkit

Ben Drawbaugh

Although everyone isn't on board the tru2way train, those that are excited about it, are pushing forward. Today Motorola officially announced its tru2way toolkit. The kit will includes software to run on Windows XP, as well as a Motorola tru2way STB for real world testing. So whether you work for a cable company that's ramping up for deployment, or just an independent developer hoping to break into a walled garden near you, you'll be able to test your application without all the normally insanely expensive equipment like a your own personal headend. The exact price wasn't included in the release, but whatever it costs, Motorola assures you there won't be any 3rd party licensing fees as the kit is based on open source tools.
