ABSTRACT
The article reports on the functions and contribution of analog-signal zappers to the cable operators and consumer electronics. According to Comcast Corp. chief operating officer Steve Burke, its firm aims to use digital-to-analog (DTA) boxes as the main way to free up near-term capacity. The DTA boxes are designed to replicate the feel of surfing an analog lineup because of its cable tuners, analog video outputs, and an infrared remote control.
