NCTA sets rules for CIO.IT competition

The NCTA will use two competitive Cable Show panel sessions featuring four presentations each to winnow down eight candidates and select the winners of its second CIO.IT Competition.

The eight finalists, filtered down from a group of more than 45 applications received earlier this year, will "present solutions to some of cable's greatest IT challenges" to a panel of CIO judges who will then select their favorites from each panel.

Among the issues being reviewed during the June 15 panels are back-office requirements for TV Everywhere services, dynamic advertising insertion in online video and on-demand programming, harmonizing it functions, managing advanced services over cable networks and geo-spatial information analysis tools.
