Editor's Corner


Reporting live from CTIA I.T. here in Los Angeles, it's mostly a mobile play here at the show, but IPTV has come up once in a while. While at the Ericsson booth, I took in a demo of their IPTV GUI and the functionality of their platform (more on this later). I also stopped by the WhiteBlox booth at the ShowStoppers event Tuesday night and had a briefing about their cross-platform strategy--mobile, desktop and TV (IP). I'm getting ready to fly out in a few hours, but I will have more extensive details next week.

Also wanted to send out a friendly reminder that we're finishing up the Fierce 15 Awards for IPTV next week, but if anyone wants to do one last minute pitch be sure to send me a note explaining why your company is fierce and how you're set to change the market in the year ahead. We're happy to honor embargoed information and willing to sign NDAs if it comes to that. Some of the fiercest companies in the year ahead can't show all their cards, but they really should show them all to us. - Brian
