Breakthrough in “plug & play” cable standard may be near

November 8, 2002

Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), said his group has been working hard for several months to help achieve a national “plug & play” DTV cable standard for interconnection of consumer electronics equipment. Such a standard would allow home users to easily connect a diverse range of cable reception devices with display monitors and other products.

“I am extraordinarily optimistic that within in a matter of days we will have an announcement of a consumer-friendly standard which we’ll present to the FCC and others,” said Shapiro at a CEA event in New York City on Nov. 6.
