PHOTOS! The Cable Show, Part I

NEW ORLEANS -- The Cable Show -- All the big cable operators were here. All the big technology companies were here. And you'll find hardly any of them in our photo coverage of The Cable Show.

Our reason? This show was really all about content. While technology discussions take up most of the sessions, the show floor features dozens of channels trotting out as many celebrities as they can to stand out and make a bigger splash than their network rivals.

The result? Well, we can't bring ourselves to photograph VOD servers when Kim Kardashian is standing just 10-feet away. So click on the image below to enjoy our first in a series of photo recaps from The Cable Show:

Content and Hospitality All photos by Brian Gauvin/Getty Images. The captions, direction, and bad ideas are our fault.

re: PHOTOS! The Cable Show, Part I I am sure that the fine minds at Light Reading will put forth an appropriate and tasteful selection of photos including: scantly clad woman, digital converters, and RF modulators, and more scantly clad woman. And hopefully someone will blog about all of them.

re: PHOTOS! The Cable Show, Part I What?!?! I just can't believe readers prefer pics of a scantily-clad woman lounging in a giant martini glass to my award-winning slideshow of digital-to-analog bricks! Then again, I can.

I'll save it for our print edition... the one the PR firms are always calling and asking about.

re: PHOTOS! The Cable Show, Part I That's the sizzle. But there's plenty of steak to carve up and share as well.

re: PHOTOS! The Cable Show, Part I i can tell by part 1 of your photos that you guys are working very hard at the show. its a hard thanks-less job you guys have. LOL

but in all honesty i would much rather see the pics you posted as opposed to new digital converters ;)
