Imagination Technologies is delighted to report that set-top box developer Pace Micro Technology and Sega Corporation today announced that they have agreed to jointly develop a set-top box home gateway with built-in Dreamcast architecture. The product utilises PowerVR Series2 graphics technology, developed by PowerVR Technologies, a division of Imagination Technologies.

The new device will open Pace’s digital home gateway to Sega’s extensive games portfolio, integrating Sega’s platform into Pace’s digital home gateway. It will be marketed jointly by the two companies to broadcasters and network providers around the world. The product is being demonstrated this week at PACE road shows in the USA and on February 15th in the UK.

Set-top boxes with built-in Dreamcast architecture will enable consumers to play network games as well as view TV shows and other entertainment content using this single product. Games will be downloaded on demand to an integral hard disk – currently 40 Gigabytes – that Pace has incorporated into its digital TV home gateway. These devices will enjoy complete compatibility with Dreamcast games content by utilising the proven Dreamcast technology, including PowerVR graphics processing.
