IPTV Takes Center Stage at Telecom2008 at the NAB Show

IPTV's Benefits to Consumers and Carriers Explored in Telecom2008's Four Tracks

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - March 26, 2008) - Team Lightbulb™, a premier conference, trade show and event planning and management organization, today announced the full schedule for Telecom2008 at the NAB Show. Telecom2008 will focus on the technologies, issues and benefits of IPTV and broadband video ecosystems and deployments in four tracks: The Business of IPTV, Telecom Technology Papers, IPTV - It's about the Content, and Telecom Crash Course.

"This year's conference reflects a new level of maturity for IPTV in terms of services and deployments," said John Abel, Partner with Team Lightbulb. "For example, we have speakers looking at new advertising models and how the web and IPTV interrelate -- characteristics that differentiate IPTV from traditional broadcast, satellite and cable.

"It is clear that IPTV is having an impact on content as well as advertising and can be seen as a new revenue source rather than simply a replacement of cable and satellite," he added.

Speakers at Telecom2008 include IPTV business, technology and advertising experts from AT&T, Telecom Italia, Microsoft TV, Consolidated, Cisco, IBM, SaskTel, Conklin-Intracom, USTelecom, SES Americom, NEC, and Verizon.

Registration to Telecom2008 includes all four tracks as well as access to the NAB Show's more than 1600 exhibits, all Super Sessions and the Spotlight Series. Team Lightbulb also offers guided Exhibit Floor tours exploring the IPTV and broadband video ecosystem for an additional fee.

Registration information can be found at Register for Telecom2008.

The NAB Show, held in Las Vegas from April 11-17, is the world's largest electronic media show covering filmed entertainment and the development, management and delivery of content across all media.
