The changing role of cable TV

Now a long-established and popular feature of IBC, this afternoon the Benelux group of the Society of Cable Television Engineers (SCTE) holds its annual technical meeting.

The SCTE extends a warm welcome to all visitors: you need neither an IBC Conference pass nor SCTE membership to join in the debate.

This year the conference is looking at the technical issues surrounding the changing nature of CATV networks. The opportunity now exists to deliver IPTV and streaming video over cable, with the hybrid fibre-coaxial network providing a potentially powerful platform.

A number of industry experts will lead the debate. The afternoon is divided into four sections: how we can keep up with the ever-growing demand for capacity; video distribution; the challenges and benefits of IPTV over cable; and a blueprint for the future OTT delivery platform.

The session will end with a closing discussion, drawing all the threads together, followed by networking drinks. If you are involved in cable technology, in online and OTT services or delivering content to the home, this is an important session, brought to you by IBC and SCTE.

All visitors are welcome: it starts at 14:00 in room E102.
