LAS VEGAS -- Telco TV 2012 -- Multi-screen video, the tricky regulatory environment and the sudden embrace of over-the-top video were among the dominating themes at this year's big event, which closed Friday.

Another common thread was the that the subscription TV business remains challenging amid skyrocketing programming costs and thinning margins, creating a need for telcos of all sizes to continue to think outside the set-top box and pursue new video revenue opportunities and business models.

There's so much change afoot that the name of the show itself is undergoing a bit of a metamorphosis. TelcoTV has been rechristened TelcoVision, reflecting a broadened focus that still includes TV, but also wireless, Ethernet and the cloud, and business strategies for Tier 2/3/4 carriers. (See TelcoTV to Become TelcoVision.)

RGB was awarded Best in Show, an award voted on by the conference attendees. RGB is also the company that provided the drink goblets you see here and here.


Coincidence?  I'm thinking not...

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
