Technicolor Building Next-Gen DirecTV Set-Top

AT&T has contracted Technicolor Connected Home USA to manufacture a next-generation high-definition set-top for its DirecTV subsidiary, according to an FCC document obtained by The Donohue Report.

“Technicolor Connected Home USA LLC has spent substantial effort in developing this product and it is one of the first of its kind in the industry,” Ervin Eilmann, Technicolor manager of qualification and certification, wrote in a request for confidentiality that was attached to the FCC test report.

The model number for the DirecTV Home Client is LC61-100.

The set-top supports ZigBee RF4CE radio frequency technology and MoCA 2.0, according to the test report.

In a letter dated Jan. 19, Technicolor asked the FCC to keep external photos, internal photos, schematics and the user’s manual confidential for 180 days.

The FCC test report appeared in the commission’s Office of Engineering and Technology database on March 3.
