Spring Technical Forum Returns To Cable Show For Third Year


The Spring Technical Forum, featuring presentations in eight sessions on a variety of technical papers, is set to run once again as part of Cable Show 2012, May 21 to 23 in Boston.

The three-day conference is co-hosted by CableLabs, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, and the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers. During the sessions, more than 35 industry authors will present highlights of their peer-reviewed technical papers.

Topics to be covered in this year's Spring Technical Papers Proceedings are: "New Approaches in Advanced User Interface and User Experience Design"; "The Technology Implications of Ultra HD; "The Next Evolution of DOCSIS... and Beyond"; "Cable's Expanding Wi-Fi World"; "IP Video Strategy and Solutions -- from Network to Consumption"; "The Gigabit Network -- New Possibilities in HFC"; "Multiscreen, Second-Screen and TV Everywhere Delivery"; and "Improved Operational Efficiency/Network Performance Enhancements."

The technical papers selection committee is chaired by GCI Cable chief technology Officer Dan Pike and includes participation of CTOs from cable operators, programmer and vendor communities in partnership with CableLabs and SCTE.

"I continue to be amazed at the innovation that flows from the cable industry which is reflected in the depth of this year's technical papers," Pike said in a statement. "We are leading the way in developing cutting-edge broadband products and services, and setting a very high bar for our competitors."

The 2012 Spring Technical Papers Proceedings will be released at The Cable Show 2012 in CD-ROM format and will be available for $50 on-site and $75 after the conference at www.thecableshow.com.

Admission to the Spring Technical Forum is included with a The Cable Show 2012 registration, although a separate RSVP is required.
