Set-top vendor ADB has demonstrated how one of its models can support both Cisco and Motorola tru2way headends.
At a recent CableLabs interoperability event, the ADB-4820C set-top was first connected to a Cisco head-end using a Cisco CableCARD, and displayed Time Warner Cables TV channels and tru2way interactive guide. The CableCARD was removed from the box and replaced with a Motorola CableCARD without powering down the set-top. The box then automatically connected to the Motorola headend, and in less than five minutes displayed ComcastÂs TV channels and tru2way interactive guide.
ÂLots of people doubt itÂs possible because US cable networks are so complex and integration is so difficult,Â said ADB CEO Francois Pogodalla. ÂFor an operator, it means it can take four to five minutes for an installer to configure the box and swap the customer from one network to another.Â
Tru2way is a US interactive cable standard and the ADB-4820C is set-top has been tru2way certified since early 2008.
