Comcast, Arris and connected TV and mobile phone manufacturer LG are among the industry players that will showcase multimedia products at The Cable Show in a new exhibit called The Observatory, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association said Monday.
Arris said increased spending from Time Warner Cable and international cable operators boosted its results for the first quarter.
Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt and Liberty Global CEO Michael Fries are among the top industry executives who will speak at The Cable Show convention in June, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association said Thursday.
It's difficult to say that Motorola is an iconic brand in cable and IPTV, since it only became a big-time vendor after it acquired cable pioneer General Instrument. On the other hand, when new owner Arris removes the brand name from its product line within a year, it will mark yet another paradigm shift for a former industry duopoly.
One day after closing its acquisition of Motorola Mobility, Arris said Marwan Fawaz, the former Charter Communications CTO who had been running Motorola's home division since June 2012, would be leaving the company.
Arris said Friday that it won approval from the Department of Justice of its $2.35 billion acquisition of Motorola Mobility's home division from Google, and that it expects the deal to close on April 17.
Statistics show that when it comes to broadband usage, 63.4 percent of usage is from people watching video. But according to an Arris executive, much of the video being watched is from power users.
The Cable TV Pioneers named the 19 industry veterans that it will induct at its annual banquet in Washington, D.C., on June 9.
Cable and broadcast networks such as HBO, Fox and ESPN will help drive the market for video encoding and transcoding to $1.5 billion by 2017, ABI Research said Wednesday.
It appears that the combination of the two cable equipment powerhouses, formed when Google sold off the Motorola business late last year in a deal expected to be completed by the middle of this year, is cutting into Cisco's market share.
