The article reports that the CableCARD interface which requires a quadrature amplitude modulation demodulator/tuner. Suddenly, devices were poised to enter the market that knew how to tune the network, which had previously been closed off to anything but cable-provided gear. Cable's technologists saw the gravity of the situation. They knew that their own networks were built so that the above scenario just wouldn't happen. They also knew they had a small wedge of time: There weren't that many digital TVs with CableCARD slots in consumer homes last winter. Still, big projections about digital devices mostly TVs and HDTVs with built-in CableCARD slots continue to radiate from the consumer electronics industry.
