LIGHT READING’S CABLE NEXT-GEN VIDEO STRATEGIES EVENT IS COMING TO NEW YORK CITY

Cable Next-Gen Video Strategies: Making the IPTV Migration, returning for its fourth straight year, is a one-day conference that will take a comprehensive look at the cable industry’s attempts to compete in the emerging next-gen video market and generate fresh revenues by upgrading its networks for the full delivery of IP video.
