Business description: Liberate Technologies (Pink Sheets: LBRT) supplies interactive TV software to some of the world's largest network operators. Liberate helps operators maximize the value of their digital networks providing industry standard software that runs multiple services on multiple platforms. With Liberate software, these operators can deliver a suite of integrated services—including high-definition television, video-on-demand, and personal video recorders—to a range of set-top box platforms. Liberate supports the standards that were defined by network operators. Liberate's Java-based software runs on today's systems and is well positioned to migrate to tomorrow's Multimedia Home Platform (MHP) and OpenCable Application Platform (OCAP) set-tops. And software built on industry standards helps operators develop new services more quickly and cost-effectively.
