"This year's conference reflects a new level of maturity for IPTV in terms of services and deployments," said John Abel, Partner with Team Lightbulb. "For example, we have speakers looking at new advertising models and how the web and IPTV interrelate -- characteristics that differentiate IPTV from traditional broadcast, satellite and cable.
"It is clear that IPTV is having an impact on content as well as advertising and can be seen as a new revenue source rather than simply a replacement of cable and satellite," he added.
Speakers at Telecom2008 include IPTV business, technology and advertising experts from AT&T, Telecom Italia, Microsoft TV, Consolidated, Cisco, IBM, SaskTel, Conklin-Intracom, USTelecom, SES Americom, NEC, and Verizon.
Registration to Telecom2008 includes all four tracks as well as access to the NAB Show's more than 1600 exhibits, all Super Sessions and the Spotlight Series. Team Lightbulb also offers guided Exhibit Floor tours exploring the IPTV and broadband video ecosystem for an additional fee.
