8/24/2005 4:52 AM Eastern

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. announced that it had achieved Cable Television Laboratories Inc. certification status for an OpenCable Application Platform-enabled interactive digital-television set, joining three other manufacturers -- LG Electronics Inc., Panasonic Consumer Electronics and Digeo Inc. -- in that category.

“This is a significant accomplishment,” said Glenn Britt, chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable and chairman of CableLabs, in a press release that included quotes from seven other cable and Samsung executives.

“The Samsung digital television is a very innovative retail device that can connect directly to the cable system and receive current advanced and premium-cable services, as well as future interactive applications to come,” he added.

“We remain committed to commercializing interactive digital-cable-ready TVs and set-top boxes to accelerate the rollout of OCAP across the North American cable industry,” said Gee Sung Choi, CEO of the digital-media business at Samsung.
