CableLabs announces initiative to create specifications for receiving off-air digital broadcasts
CableLabs is working on an initiative to develop cable interface specifications for the reception of off-air digital broadcast signals. The interface specifications would enable devices to receive digital off-air TV signals and would deliver these digital signals seamlessly through a cable set-top box. This technology would allow consumers to receive broadcast TV signals as an integrated viewing experience. The concept combines the over-the-air digital TV transmission with the TV programming carried by the cable provider.
