This year’s CES show was marked by very strong attendance, an upbeat tone, and significantly better ‘feel’ than the past couple of years. Cab lines, booth glitz, and general over-the-topulence all came back to Vegas after a long absence. Several of the booths were astonishingly large and expensive. At Microsoft, an entire segment was devoted to the new Kinect controller for the Xbox 360. I paced off the Samsung booth, starting at cell phones and ending at Internet-connected washing machines.

I was going to start with the same sentence as last time when returning from the IPTV World Forum in London: “sitting at a cafe in Heathrow airport sipping a cup of very good coffee…” But since the IBC 2010 was in Amsterdam, I had to say goodbye to The Netherlands by indulging in a portion of poffertjes. (If you don’t know what they are, you have not really explored the country).

The standardization and deployment of HTTP-based adaptive rate streaming is likely to alter the current digital TV framework of managed network vs. Internet delivery.  We feel the open approach of Apple’s version of HTTP streaming and the popularity of the iPhone and iPad along with its growing list of video-based apps, has become a major force of market adoption. Please visit Videonet's Official IBC Blog to read more. And stop by our IBC booth - 4.B84!

As a long-standing partner to Nokia Siemens Networks (back when they were just Siemens), we are proud to provide the integrated over-the-top (OTT) security component in the company’s recently launched Ubiquity TV. We have been vocal in our position of how pay-TV operators should integrate OTT and adaptive rate streaming technologies with existing managed networks to enhance ARPU, subscriber loyalty and lure incremental advertising dollars.

The majority of our conversations with digital TV operators these days are focused on, ‘what’s next?’ I mentioned this earlier this year and the main themes still exist. Operators are evaluating the best, and most-cost effective ways to enhance their network that will improve their competitive profile, capture additional revenue or simply better serve current subscribers.
