STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) will demonstrate at NAB Show 2014, April 5th-10th April, Las Vegas (booth #SU721) how it is making TV Anywhere a reality with its unique blend of innovative solutions, services and deep industry knowledge and vision. The company will highlight how it is enabling the creation of compelling TV Anywhere experiences through the delivery of Pay-TV at web speed, and the ability to make video-centric networks highly efficient.
Ericsson’s 2013 ConsumerLab research shows the continuing increase in content being watched on the move, with 72 percent of consumers watching video on a mobile device at least once a week. This shift to mobility, combined with the proliferation of connected devices and the spread of available broadband services, is having a transformative effect on the media industry. Ericsson’s heritage in both media and IP enables the company to address these changes and consumer desire for content any time, anywhere, on any device. As a result Ericsson is a key partner in helping content owners, broadcasters and TV service providers to excel in the services and experiences they deliver.
Visitors to the Ericsson booth #SU721 can see demonstrations of the following new solutions and services:

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
