Behind video’s modern-day metamorphosis – new screens, new formats, new ways to interact – is a cable-powered platform that shuttles video streams by the billions to end users over wired and wireless networks. As the leading platform for broadband IP networks, the cable industry is at the center of a revolution in video delivery that’s being shaped and reformed literally by the day.
For three days this summer, this revolution takes center stage as global media and communications industry leaders gather in Chicago for The Cable Show 2011, the largest and most comprehensive event devoted to the platforms, people and possibilities of cable.
With the theme “Everything Possible,” The Cable Show 2011 combines idea-generating panel discussions, high-profile media industry keynotes and plentiful networking opportunities with an exhibit floor that’s packed with the latest innovations in video and communications content and technology. Among special programs presented at The Cable Show 2011 are a session track devoted to the IPv6 transition, a Technology Forum focusing in part on IP video delivery, a conference on advanced video advertising strategies and economics, and a prominent new stage on the exhibit floor for showcasing compelling concepts and breaking news announcements.
Those attractions and more offer a one-stop immersion into the dynamics of the cable-powered entertainment and communications ecosystem. Extra incentives: The Chicago location offers convenient access, and through April 15, registrants can save $100 by signing up at www.thecableshow.com. There’s more information at the website, and via Twitter and Facebook.
