Summary
  • Currently microcomputers have the edge over set-top boxes in the race to become the market standard hardware platform for the developing information superhighway. Currently only microcomputers have the technology to connect to online services and the massive Internet computer network, and the latest models have the speed and features such as CD-ROM drives, 16-bit sound and digital video to support multimedia applications. According to industry analysts Link Resources, currently 30 million US households have microcomputers, a number expected to pass 50 million by 1999. In late 1994, AT&​T will release the first set-top modem, for use with the Sega Genesis and 3DO Multiplayer set-top systems. Despite its potential, the set-top market is also hurt by competition among several incompatible hardware platforms, that will likely be in flux until the late 1990s when one product gains widespread consumer acceptance.
