As consumers increasingly find new ways to view television content, cable and telecommunications operators are faced with the challenge of transitioning legacy video delivery networks to IP distribution systems capable of serving video to multiple devices inside and outside of the home. In this keynote, Brent Smith, president and chief technology officer at Evolution Digital, delves into the challenges facing cable operators with legacy video delivery systems and outlines a strategy for the graceful migration to IP distribution that would make any chief financial officer happy. Issues Smith will cover include why it is imperative for operators to migrate to IP video distribution, as well as how providers can launch a phased approach and minimize CAPEX investments by deploying IP hybrid set-top boxes, converting Pay-Per-View and Video on Demand services to IP distribution. Smith will emphasize the financial benefits of working with a managed service provider. Smith will also describe the importance and challenges of streaming IP content to multi-screen connected devices and launching other app-based software solutions to reach the on-the-go and non-traditional viewing households.
