TROY, MI -- Delphi Corp. (PINKSHEETS: DPHIQ) and SIRIUS Satellite Radio were honored with the Automotive News PACE (Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence) award during the 14th annual PACE awards ceremony in Detroit last evening.

Delphi and SIRIUS Satellite Radio earned top honors in the Information Technology and Services Category. The companies received the PACE Award for their hardware that enables SIRIUS Backseat TV™ offered in Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles.

“This is a great honor for Delphi,” said Ken Erickson, Delphi executive in charge of the Entertainment & Communications product business unit. “We are extremely proud of the accomplishment which was achieved by effectively teaming with SIRIUS.”

Sirius Backseat TV uses the same spectrum allocation as satellite radio to bring a digital audio and video signal into the vehicle, providing alternative entertainment options for rear-seat passengers. The technology provides three channels of family-friendly TV, live 24/7 from Nickelodeon, Disney Channel and Cartoon Network.

Delphi delivered the hardware for the first satellite TV customer using this technology in North America. The technology is the next wave of rear-seat entertainment coming into vehicles.

The prestigious award is recognized around the world as the industry symbol of innovation. PACE award finalists have come from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, Australia and Japan.
