July 29, 2011 – The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) promises to address cable technology advancements in its Green Solutions and Next-Generation Video Architecture pavilions at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in November in Atlanta, Ga. According to organizers, both pavilion have been designed to offer Expo attendees enhanced educational opportunities in such areas as energy management, power availability and delivery of multiplatform video to devices both inside and outside of the home.

They will be located on the exhibit floor, which will be open November 15-17. A pre-conference Capacity Management Symposium and selected Cable-Tec Expo workshops will be held on the 14th. Both events will be at the Georgia World Congress Center.

“With the rapid pace of change in cable technology, the educational components of SCTE Cable-Tec Expo are becoming more important than ever,” said Terry Cordova, chairman of the program committee for Cable-Tec Expo and CTO of Suddenlink Communications. “Our Green and Next-Generation Video Architecture Pavilions this year will offer an unparalleled opportunity for us to expand the knowledge bases of the thousands of technologists, engineers and operations professionals who will attend Expo this year.”

Now in its third year, the Green Pavilion has been expanded this year to include power availability‚ including disaster preparedness, network availability and business services availability‚ as well as such energy management topics as alternative and renewable powering; backup powering; power efficiency; power reduction; recycling and recovery; and travel reduction.

“The Next-Generation Video Architecture Pavilion is intended to create an opportunity for Expo attendees to see what is behind a Content Distribution Network (CDN)” including: ingestion of content; transcoding/transrating of content; distribution of content across a transport network or national backbone; and access to and entitlement of content both inside and outside the home, whether on a smart device or a home gateway, said SCTE.

This year’s event also promises to offer hundreds of hands-on, technology-centric exhibits; a full array of robust and relevant technical workshops; and valuable learning that is driven by peer-to-peer interaction and networking.
