The article focuses on the need by the bandwidth to deliver 200 standard definition channels and 20-plus high definition (HD) channels, per a start-up displaying its set-top technology at the American Cable Association's Washington Summit. To address such the need, a fact that digital-to-analog conversion may take place in the home is emphasized. A theory is also cited which states the smallest system would have the capacity to compete with satellite or telco television rivals.
