CableLabs® Announces Initiative to Create Specifications for Receiving Off-Air Digital Broadcasts
Louisville, Colorado, March 1, 2007—CableLabs®, the cable television industry's technology development consortium, announced that it is working on an initiative to develop cable interface specifications for receipt of off-air digital broadcast signals.
The interface specifications would enable devices to receive digital off-air television signals and would deliver these digital signals seamlessly through a cable set-top box. This technology would allow consumers to receive broadcast television signals as an integrated viewing experience. The concept combines over-the-air digital television transmission with television programming carried by the cable provider.
