Allen to Keynote SCTE Confab


Charter Communications Inc. chairman Paul G. Allen will deliver the opening keynote address at the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers’ Conference on Emerging Technologies, the SCTE said Tuesday.

The Microsoft Corp. cofounder will kick off the confab, set for Jan. 11-13 in Huntington Beach, Calif.

“With the dynamic technical program it has in store, ET 2005 already was poised to be one of the best ET conferences ever,” SCTE CEO John Clark said in a prepared statement. “Now, with Paul Allen on board as opening keynote speaker, ET 2005 is positively a can’t-miss event.”
