April 2007
Multichannel News;4/16/2007, Vol. 28 Issue 16, p28
The article reports that Motorola and Scientific Atlanta will be ramping up production of CableCard boxes in May 2007. The companies believe that they have a margin that lets people finish some of their processes and testing before the U.S. Federal Communications Commission bans set-tops with integrated security on July 1, 2007. The ban will require most operators after July 1 to deploy digital-cable boxes with separate security mechanisms.
