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...

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.
