Charter Communications Inc. may be nearing deployment of a new digital set-top from Humax, an FCC document obtained by The Donohue Report indicates.
The high-definition set-top, labeled Spectrum 101-H, passed emission tests at the FCC, according to a test report that appeared this week in the FCC Office of Engineering & Technology database.
Charter announced last year that it would deploy “Worldbox” set-tops that rely on downloadable security to power its cloud-based Spectrum TV service. Cisco is also manufacturing Worldbox set-tops for Charter.
Technology vendors that Charter is working with on include Zodiac Interactive and ActiveVideo. In 2015, Arris and Charter closed a $135 million deal to acquire ActiveVideo.
