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 availability of and demand for new services are accelerating the ability of cable operators to differentiate product bundle, attract and retain subscribers and generate new revenue," the show's program chairman Jay Rolls, whose full time job is senior VP-technology at Cox Communications, told TV Technology.

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.
