As you know if you’ve been reading my recent posts, this week I attended The Cable Show 2012 in Boston. This was my first Cable Show, but I’m hoping it won’t be my last. Though they probably won’t make it so easy for me next time by holding it in Boston again, it moves every year – 2011 was Chicago. I just drove in from home in Worcester each day this year.
So far I’ve really only posted what I learned from TiVo, since I know that’s the leading interest for my readers, but they’re hardly the only vendor I talked to. I had some great conversations with vendors such as Pace, Arris, Humax, SiliconDust, Comcast, and others. I just need to recover from the show and find some time to do some additional research and compose some more posts. For some hints about what I’ll be covering you can check out the photos I took. Bear with me, I also need to pick up my day job in the morning.
If you want a glimpse of what the show floor was like The Cable Show posted a short video tour. Walking the floor is sped up, which makes me want to mash up the video with Yakety Sax. (Some of you get it, I’m sure.) I found that if you play it back at .25x it is more like a fast walk and you can catch more detail.
