Contact: Kristopher Jones, National Association of Broadcasters, 202-429-5486


WASHINGTON, Mar. 5 /Standard Newswire/ -- NAB2007 will feature a new Super Session focusing on Internet-protocol television, IPTV. The session, entitled "IPTV: Market Outlook 2010," will take place Tuesday, April 17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center during NAB2007.


Jimmy Schaeffler, chairman & chief service officer for The Carmel Group, a California-based telecom consultancy, will moderate the 90-minute panel discussion examining the impact of IPTV on broadcast businesses.


"IPTV presents many new and advanced opportunities in the future of video delivery," said Schaeffler. "It's importance to the telecom community and the consumers they serve should not be underestimated."


The session will examine the future of IPTV at a time when phone companies offering video program delivery continue to push new content and bandwidth down to the end-user, resulting in new competitive revenue streams for the multichannel TV industry.


Six executive panelists will participate in the "IPTV: Market Outlook 2010" Super Session:


  • James Goodmon, president and CEO, Capitol Broadcasting Company, Inc.

The session takes place Tuesday, April 17 from 9:00-10:30 in room S222/223 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
