Saltaire, West Yorkshire, 22 March 2006: As the number of entertainment devices employed in the average home increases, so the ability to link these items together becomes more and more important. This is the subject under scrutiny by Steve Jenkins, Chief Technologist at Pace Micro Technology plc (pic.l), at NCTA on 11 April 2006.
Looking at the issues operators and homeowners face when installing and upgrading home coax distribution systems, Steve's paper 'Home Co-ax Metamorphosis: From TV Distribution To Content Network' will focus on the key technical aspects of a home network. This will cover how best to convert a simple system - originally installed and modified periodically to distribute TV - into a multi-directional, high-speed digital network.
This paper will be presented as part of the 'Works of Architecture: New Approaches for Media Distribution' session to be held on Tuesday 11 April from 8:00AM to 9:15AM in Room B407 at the NCTA show. Other speakers in this session will include Guy Cherry and Rich Higgins from C-COR and Oleh Sniezko from Aurora Networks, Inc. The session will be chaired by Tony Werner, Senior VP & CTO of Liberty Global, Inc.
