IP&TV World Forum
announces that the event will be rebranded as TV Connect, to echo the evolving industry and rapidly converging TV market.
The event, which is now in its eighth year, has been a global platform leading the debate, the development and the deployment of IP delivered TV, and embodies a vibrant and dynamic marketplace. With cablecos, satellite, terrestrial broadcasters, content providers and telcos all providing enhancements to their services through Internet connectivity, the rebrand represents the growing and diverse nature of IP & Connected TV, and recognises the shift in industry players that now offer TV and personalised media services.
TV Connect is an inclusive brand that recognises the business and technical challenges that the community faces, and those within it, including telcos, cable providers, broadcasters and ISPs, consumer electronics and Smart TV companies, content providers, application developers, and other connected entertainment providers, such as gaming and music.
