Cable Show provides time, space for technical issues

The forum, sponsored by NCTA, SCTE and CableLabs, proposes to offer "a strategic view of cable's technology future from the industry's chief technical leadership," according to a news release.

The industry has taken steps to roll its multiple gatherings together to serve diverse audiences. For instance, the Spring Technical Forum is incorporating what used to be the SCTE Emerging Technologies (ET) conference held in winter or early spring.
