Panelists: IPTV to make huge economic impact

According to panelists at Deloitte & Touche's forum in New York City this week, IPTV and WiMAX are going to be "game changing" technologies likely to have a huge economic impact by 2009. The panelists included venture capitalists, R&D professionals, CEOs and reps from major tech companies. Interestingly, another conclusion emerging from the conference is that the set-top box may lose the market for IPTV. The InformationWeek article includes Internet TV and STB-enabled IPTV when it refers to IPTV, a trend that seems widespread now.
