Solutions for HD Local Hospitality & EPG Channel Creation and Insertion
May 21, 2013
Sponsored by ATX

ATXMany hospitality and bulk account customers require their service providers to accommodate for insertion of their locally generated content.  Recently, there’s been an increasing demand that these local channels be delivered in full HD resolutions to match the ever increasing number of regular programming channels being delivered in HD.  This session will explore architectural and equipment options available to accomplish this task, as well as highlight specific breakthrough features that have just recently been made available to MSOs – such as the ability of platforms to natively accept .ppt files and allow for commercial customers to easily create a scheduled in-house content channel, and even synchronize it across multiple properties, all in a single box package with a QAM output for insertion directly onto the coax network. In addition, the session will discuss how an Electronic Program Guide (EPG) channel customized to a hospitality or commercial customer’s lineup can be generated and delivered to enhance the STB-less, bulk video offering to these customers.

Presenter: Derek Yuen, Director, Business Development, Digital Video Products & Solutions, ATX



How EPON Can Maximize Your Business Services ROI
June 4
Sponsored by Fujitsu

FujitsuVideo revenues have been flat or declining, and residential data installations are rapidly approaching market saturation, indicating that the cable industry’s primary revenue engine is running out of steam. Conversely, cable operators continue to enjoy double-digit annual growth in commercial services, especially in the small-to-medium (SMB) enterprise market segment.  While small-to-medium enterprise customers have been lucratively well served by traditional DOCSIS® technology, increased adoption of cloud services is driving bandwidth demands beyond what can be practicably served by a cable modem.

This webinar will outline the financial and operational advantages of using 1 and 10 gigabit Ethernet Passive Optical Networking (EPON) to deliver high bandwidth support for business services.  We will discuss the potential market size that can be captured using EPON, and provide a cost comparison with both DOCSIS and dedicated fiber Ethernet methodologies. We will also explain how cable operators can leverage technology developments, such as the CableLabs® DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON (DPoE™) specification, that provide economies of scale and reuse existing operations practices and tools to deliver EPON services. Finally, we will consider future EPON developments such as EPON over Coax and WDM PON and assess how they will provide expanded commercial market opportunities beyond SMB.

Presenters: Bill Beesley, Principal Solutions Architect, Packet Optical Networking, Fujitsu

 

Making Any Screen Your Main Screen Reality
June 18
Sponsored by ARRIS

ARRISIn today’s competitive pay TV environment, consumers demand personalized multi-screen experiences inside and outside the home. To meet this demand, service providers know they must act quickly. Yet many have delayed launching TV Everywhere services because they expect deployment complexities and higher costs. Moreover, many doubt they have the resources to integrate and launch these new services in a timely manner. 

Thanks to today’s cloud-based, multi-screen video solutions, preparing for and launching TV Everywhere is not as complex or costly as you may think. Service providers, in fact, can quickly and cost-effectively deliver next-generation TV and entertainment experiences from the cloud to today’s most popular consumer devices, over any network, in the home and beyond—even while utilizing their current in-home and back office infrastructure—without interrupting their day-to-day operations.

When evaluating the factors that go into successfully launching TV Everywhere services, you shouldn’t overlook the value of working with a highly skilled, end-to-end video systems integration partner. The right partner can assess your current technology plans, design the right system solutions for your needs, and prepare your network for delivering your new services. Systems integration services can also mitigate risks and improve time to market for new services.

During this presentation, service providers will learn how to reduce the complexities associated with TV Everywhere delivery leveraging a systems integrator.
