OCAP and CableCARD events

ncta_fcc.jpg

Continuing with the week’s OCAP and CableCARD coverage, there are two events worth mentioning. Monday the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) ran an OCAP dog-and-pony show for the FCC. Not much new appears to have been announced, but a Broadcasting and Cable article mentions some of the OCAP features shown including video games and weather and traffic reports.

Meanwhile, there’s an FCC event taking place today starting at 4:00 pm in, of all places, Portland Maine. As of yesterday the event was going to include discussion of “compatibility between cable systems and consumer electronics equipment,” but oddly today it appears that agenda item has been deleted. The main focus is on localism and media ownership rules. If you’re interested, you can listen to the seven-hour (?!) audio webcast.

Finally, with the roll-call tallies in, it looks like attendance at NXTcomm was down this year, but SCTE Cable-Tec Expo attendance was up. Rock on cable engineers.
