HELSINKI -- Welho, the largest cable operator in Finland, has started 3DTV test distribution in its cable network in the Helsinki region in mid-December. The signal is distributed from Welho’s head-end to all homes in the network, just like any ordinary cable channel. A sneak preview of future TV can be seen in Welho Store in Helsinki. Welho’s 3DTV test is auto-stereoscopic, offering a future viewing experience without 3D glasses.

Welho has been upgrading its service platform and fibre network consistently in order to be able to offer different capacity-intensive future services, such as 3DTV. Welho plans to launch commercial 3DTV services already next year.

“Homes connected to Welho’s network have always been in a privileged position because we see it as our mission to bring our customers all the new and interesting developments that TV can provide. Thanks to our substantial investments in network capacity, we can be fast in launching fascinating new services and products, brought about by technological advancement. We were among the first to offer digital HDTV services, and now we are ready for the new TV revolution,” says Johan Flykt, President of Welho.

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.
