This article presents interview of Ralph Brown, the chief technology officer of CableLabs Inc. Brown says that he had responsibilities for the broadband access department, which are DOCSIS and CableHome. He says that he is still responsible for specification development interops and certification for those projects. There's this embedded CA part and video functionality and this sort of stuff that they don't look at it's up to the MSOs to deal with because it's a proprietary box that they're buying that's different from the company OpenCable box where they would actually look at the CableCARD and the host interface.
