The Alliance is hosting it's annual Video Seminar, which has been renamed as Convergence TV.  We will host sponsored User Group meetings on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 11th, and the main conference will be held on Wednesday, September 12th at the West Des Moines Marriott.  Convergence TV is dedicated to video operations and the transition toward broadband-supplied video for small providers.

Why should you attend?

Becuase you will be educated and trained on the following topics: 

  • Legal and Regulatory Developments Impacting Video Providers
  • A technical session describing the impact of OTT (i.e., YouTube TV) on our networks through the use of caching servers, peering points, and managed wi-fi
  • Marketing aspects of managed Wi-Fi services – best practices of what to do and what not to do
  • Best practices on reducing costs of video operations when content costs keep increasing
  • Best practices on transitioning the network to becoming a broadband pipe for services provided by others (i.e., operators considering no longer providing video service)
  • An example of an operator from another state to describe how products are used
  • Steps by linear providers to address OTT
  • Other current topics of interest to providers of video services
