SCTE promises 3D, IP television; Zaslav, Kent to co-chair NCTA

The upcoming SCTE Cable-Tec Expo (Oct. 20-22 in New Orleans) will be, as President-CEO Mark Dzuban has promised, a showcase for the industry's technology vision and how the pieces fit together.

The industry's other showpiece, Cable Show 2011, will be co-chaired by Discovery (Nasdaq: DISCA) Communications President-CEO David Zaslav and Suddenlink Chairman-CEO Jerry Kent. The show, in its 60th iteration, will be returning to an appropriate venue for a trade show that spouts a lot of messages: Chicago, the so-called Windy City.
