Initially announced in early 2015, WorldBox was built to enable traditional and cloud-based user interfaces, content, and new video features for Charter subscribers. With the new version, Charter says it will expand on its current downloadable conditional access (DCAS) capabilities, allowing it to work on legacy CAS systems across Charter’s newly widened footprint following its acquisitions of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks. This is made possible through the built-in security processing capabilities now available in generic chipsets, Charter said, adding that Worldbox 2.0 will also offer better graphics capabilities and more processing power.

“While Charter is focused on providing a secure video product on all devices, WorldBox 2.0 provides the same advanced video experience consumers are demanding on traditional television sets, and gives Charter the flexibility to deploy a single platform across our entire expanded network,” said Jim Blackley, Charter EVP of engineering and IT, in a statement. “Our ongoing work with Arris – in developing this platform, including the downloadable security component – and the establishment of the warrant program, speaks to the strength of our long-standing relationship and the value of ARRIS’s expertise in large-scale, next-generation deployments.” Charter, Arris partner up for WorldBox 2.0 | FierceCable
