WHAT: TelcoTV is the telecom industry's premier event for the exploration of a comprehensive entertainment convergence strategy. Like no other event, TelcoTV brings together service providers of all sizes, with a common interest in transforming their organizations into entertainment powerhouses. The TelcoTV exhibit hall is packed with hundreds of vendors showcasing technical solutions and cutting-edge content to help telcos compete against cable and satellite.
WHY: As the challenges faced by traditional print and broadcast media put increasing pressure on broadband television to point the way forward to an exploding population of wired homes, schools, workplaces, and public buildings, TelcoTV has established itself as the No. 1 meeting place for the many stakeholders embracing this revolution - most notably service providers. TelcoTV 2009 provides a holistic view of entertainment convergence, encompassing MobileTV, NetVideo, IPTV, and hybrid solutions.
WHO: Top names from ATT, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Inc., and Nokia Siemens Networks will be among the keynote speakers at this year's TelcoTV conference and Expo ( http://www.lightreading.com/live/event_information.asp?event_id=29081).
