The future of the set-top is a key topic of debate. Will this device become more resource-rich, will it be eliminated in favor of cloud-based services, or will other connected CE devices absorb it? In Europe, some operators are pushing to have thin-client devices for all televisions in the home, with each enabled by cloud-based services. This session looks at the different scenarios for the set top, including the market for retail set-tops, requirements for operator-provided boxes, and the potential for a full-featured primary gateway that would manage user profiles in the household and handle conditional access, security, data, and other functions. This session also examines the role of alternative set-top boxes among other connected CE devices in the home.
