"Understanding the Market and Deployment Obstacles of Video over DSL" is a free, one day educational seminar featuring two tracks: a technical track focuses on the critical hardware and network equipment used to deploy Telco TV services; and a marketing track covers content acquisition and packaging of content for a telephone company's successful transition to digital entertainment provider.

"As more independent telephone companies are planning their IP video strategy, it's important that key decision makers understand the intricacies of a successful deployment," said William Cobb, vice president of product management at Paradyne. "By assembling educational content from industry leaders that provide the various pieces of an IP video network, Paradyne has produced the single most important event for any telco considering video."

"For the independent telcos to truly thrive in the world of entertainment distribution, it is important for them to be united and work together so they will be able to both source and create content that will differentiate them from their competitors," said Ken Pyle, vice president of Viodi, LLC. "We are thrilled to be participating with such high profile suppliers and believe this seminar will be effective in bringing the industry together to share a common vision for the future of IP Video," said Pyle.
