Panasonic also brought up the CEO of Comcast to talk about two cable developments. First, a new standard called tru2way. Basically, it means you can have the cable box built into the TV (the company said sets will be available in late 2008), and still do interactive things like on-demand and pay-per-view, something missing from today's lame cable-card technology. This is built on the Open Cable standard, which means that it shouldn't be just limited to Comcast, but we'll see. They also showed a prototype of a new cable box with a built-in portable video player called AnyPlay. It looks sorta like a portable DVD player, but holds all the programs you've recorded on your DVR. It has an 8.5-inch screen and a 60-gigabyte hard drive.
