With both SBC and Verizon pushing IPTV in the US, the US is finally coming around to the view that IPTV is a big deal. That is hardly news to those who will be speaking at this year's IPTV World Forum at Earls Court Conference Centre, in London on 8 and 9 March 2005.
The IPTV World Forum will include high profile speakers from Siemens, PCCW, Reliance Entertainment, BT, Tandberg Broadcasting, BBC and many more. Industry leaders such as Texas Instruments, Cisco Systems, Myrio, Video Networks, On Demand Group, Disney, EBU and Ofcom will also be speaking about marketing and bundling to deliver triple play services, partnerships with content, and new localized services which can be deployed over IPTV.
On day one, speakers will provide an understanding of the IPTV market, explain how to deploy and market IPTV services worldwide and how technologies support IPTV roll outs. The second day is dedicated to service development strategies.
