Returning from last year’s convention, Rob McCann, president and CEO of Clearcable Networks, will open up the NCTC Winter Educational Conference on Feb. 25 at 9 a.m with an on address on bandwidth reclamation, WiFi deployment and other priorities Coop members should be focused on in 2013 and beyond. McCann’s session will be followed by a session providing practical solutions for a number of the topics McCann touches on.

Moderated by Needham & Co., managing director Laura Martin, Monday’s closing panel, “The Future of TV: A Vision of Tomorrow from Today’s Leaders,” will feature Aereo founder and CEO Chet Kanojia and Roku founder and CEO Anthony Wood.

On Feb. 26 at 9 a.m.,the gaze heads east toward Washington D.C. with "ACA Update: The Road to Rewrite and Beyond." ACA president and CEO will moderate a panel tackling such issues as what can be expected from the new Congress and whether that will result in revamps of the1992 Cable Act and current retransmission-consent rule.

Those eating lunch Tuesday at Winter Educational Conference will be entertained by Danny Koker and Kevin Mack of History’s Counting Cars
