The never-ending question of cable network’s “traps”
Home Tech Discussions The never-ending question of cable network’s “traps”
The FCC has been considering a change of their basic encryption rules. It may sound complicated, but in reality, it’s a pretty simple concept. If you can’t quite comprehend it, we’ll explain the idea in simple terms. There has been a lot of public discussion about this matter, and everyone should get the opportunity to state their opinion about it, but first you need to analyze the whole idea.
Why are encryption and traps important for providers?
In short words – it’s all about the control. The idea of authentication is at the heart of encryption. In simpler words, the providers want to ensure that only people who pay for the services get the access. Traps are an old way of controlling the authentication of service users, and they act like a simple filter. Back in the early 1970s, upon launching the first premium channel (the HBO), providers began offering more and more premium programs. However, it was almost arbitrary, so a vast number of users didn’t want to pay for the new service.
The cable network came to an idea to develop a device, called a negative trap, to prevent access to people who refuse to pay for certain channels. It was a pretty simple device which was designed to only let particular frequencies through the unit while blocking others.
However, the times have changed, and the new technology requires innovative units, instead of dated devices. The television has become more than a luxury commodity; it became almost a necessity. Also, the service moved from the point of providing only TV programs to data, voice, and video, which brings us to another problem. For example, even though a vast majority of subscribers opt for all three services, some only want the television or Internet. The companies value all of their consumers the same way, but they need to be sure that no one gets access to the service they didn’t pay for.
The first issue with traps is that they’re simply outdated. Because the broadband frequencies tend to be quite similar to TV signal frequencies, it’s not uncommon for the TV signal to get “through” the trap. The consequences are pretty obvious; it’s unfair towards people who do pay for these services. Also, the company’s financial loss is enormous.
There is a device called “QAM tuner” which allows former subscribers and Internet users to receive TV signal without paying for it. Also, by installing a simple splitter, users can get access to unencrypted channels, which can be found online. Of course, many major providers advocate the use of traps, but there are quite a few problems with the concept. For example, a technician is required to install the device physically. Also, they need to enter your home to ensure everything is connected properly, and not all of us like to let strangers in our home.
A few questions emerge immediately:
- Is it worth sending technicians out to intervene even if we’re on the verge of digitalizing everything?
- Is it cost-efficient?
- Is it a good idea to overwhelm the market with obsolete devices from the 1970s? – Probably not.

Hunting photo-video trap 730A
Hunting photo-video trap 730A 12MP
Today, going hunting without using digital equipment is outdated and irrational. One of its varieties is the hunting camera — a functional and necessary device for tracking animals in their natural habitats. If you look for its analogues in everyday life, then the closest will be a video surveillance camera installed at a variety of facilities to ensure security. Its operation is carried out in a similar way: the camera is in sleep mode until a moving object enters its field of view. Some models keep a constant record, or turn on at certain intervals. nine0009
This technique performs several functions: it is primarily used to track wild animals and study their behavior. A particularly successful case is when a spectacular hunting scene falls into the field of view of the camera, then its owner will be able to see a bright, exciting and dynamic action.
With this type of digital technology, the hunter can significantly reduce the time of tracking the animal, which is especially valuable in conditions of constant lack of free time. nine0009
When buying a camera, you should pay close attention to the following parameters of its operation:
- Operating time without recharging. The larger it is, the less often you have to change the batteries.
- Degree of protection from external influences. This includes humidity, shock loads and operating temperature ranges.
- Response speed — this will allow you to capture even the most dynamic event.
- Range and visibility of the backlight — this will allow you not only to shoot in the dark, but also will not allow the camera to go unnoticed. nine0006
The device is a camera equipped with a motion sensor that responds to the body temperature of an animal or person. Due to the low cost and wide functionality, the scope of this camera can be hunting, monitoring gamekeepers, protecting your property and much more. The camera trap perfectly copes with its tasks even at night with the help of IR illumination. This model works at a temperature of -30° to +50°C with a humidity of 5%-90%.
To start working with the camera, you need to install an SD memory card (flash drive from 4 to 32 Gb) and four batteries in the form of ordinary AA batteries (finger-type) into it. For ease of use as a forest camera trap, a special clamping strap is supplied for attaching the body of the camera trap to trees.
