Collection Engine

July 21, 2012

CIMM DEFINITION: A device and programming software that facilitates the aggregation of collected data, such as channels tuned by Set-Top Boxes  in a geographic area.

NOTE – “In Charter this is an EBIF application known as the Event Stream Collector. Transmission of census data over the out-of-band return path is non-trivial, and the software in the Set-Top Box must cooperate with a collection server.” (Source: FourthWall Media)
