Warm Reception

Warm Reception

Published: Thursday, March 17, 2016

With just over four weeks until the only national show for signal reception and distribution the CAI has almost completed it keynote speaker slot allocation for this year’s event at the National Motorcycle Museum on Wednesday 27th April.

After a welcome and introduction by the CAI’s Chairman, Les Hampson, attendees will hear from the Digital TV Group’s Chief Executive, Richard Lindsay-Davies. Richard will set the scene for the show by delivering his overview of where he sees the UK’s digital TV future, with all the progression towards mobile broadband, spectrum and Ultra HD TV.

Following Richard will be Ofcom’s Principle Broadcast Specialist, Graham Plumb.  Graham is working on the Ofcom strategy that will see 700MHz – part of the UK TV frequency spectrum – handed over for more mobile broadband. He is working closely with Digital UK who now have a new Programme Director for 700MHz, Kate Macefield. Between Graham and Kate the industry has an exclusive opportunity to hear about how the sell-off of 700MHz will affect aerial business. At least 100,000 homes will need an aerial change when existing services migrate to new spectrum area. How the affected viewers will be helped through this ‘switchover’ will doubtless involve CAI members.

Returning for a record three-times-in-a-row visit to the CAI stage is Thomas Wrede, Vice President of Reception Systems at SES. Thomas brings us the satellite perspective of 4K and Ultra High Definition and, in his words, much more.

This will then be rounded off with a first time visit from CEDIA’s Education Director, Simon Buddle. A long-time friend of the CAI, Simon has a wide, experienced overview of the custom installation trade, an area more and more CAI installers are finding themselves involved.

There are also plans to have someone speak on the latest approach to Integrated Reception Systems in readiness for Sky Q, however, the staging of that are under discussion at this time.
