TelcoTV: AT&T leads awards list

For the second consecutive year, AT&T bagged the Service Provider's Innovation Award during the 2009 TelcoTV Vision Awards program last week. The honor was in recognition of the telco's Multiview Interactive TV application, which AT&T executive Jeff Weber had played up during his keynote speech that opened the show last Wednesday. Multiview, a sort of picture-in-picture programming guide, allows U-verse TV subscribers to watch up to four channels at one time and initiate DVR recordings from any of the picture-in-picture screens.

"Multiview is not new software or a new piece of technology," Weber said during his speech. "It's an example of a content application, something the U-Verse V environment allows us to do." 

Other Vision Award winners during the program included: Zeugma Systems for Innovation in Broadband Access Networks; Nagravision for Innovation in Conditional Access; Ericsson for Innovation in Customer Premises Equipment; RGB Networks for Innovation in Encoding; Nokia Siemens Networks for Innovation in Middleware; and Mixed Signals for Innovation in Test & Measurement.
