Now that cable operators have started striking carriage deals with Netflix, Hulu and other OTT video players, the Berlin Wall between traditional pay-TV service and online video has finally begun to tumble. Cable providers are increasingly crafting broadband video packages and integrating Internet video content into their broader multiscreen video offerings. But providers are still seeking ways to make the most of their traditional TV programming by distributing across the ever-growing number of video devices. In this webinar, video experts will discuss how small and independent cable operators can manage and monetize their TV Everywhere offerings more efficiently and effectively with the help of NCTC and its partners.

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.
