A Grand Reception

A Grand Reception

Published: Wednesday, March 08, 2017

This year promises one of the most significant CAI shows in signal reception and distribution, as Evolving Connectivity 2017 prepares to kick-off at the National Motorcycle Museum on Wednesday 26th April.

Sparking more interest than ever before from exhibitors and potential attendees, the resurrection of the CAI’s industry dinner on Tuesday 25th has seen over 100 places booked and the Arden Hotel near Birmingham Airport is now full. Plus, pre-show registrations have flown past the 100 mark already, with still over a month to go before the doors open.

Exhibition space is now almost sold out and potential exhibitors are asked to book quickly if they want to reserve the space remaining in the main suite.

A full programme of keynote talks is booked, with the following line-up now confirmed:

9.30: Registration – Show opens

10.30: Introduction & Welcome
Les Hampson, Chairman, CAI
The growth and development of CAI in the new era of audio visual delivery.

10.45: TrustMark, codes & consumer charters
Simon Ayers, Chief Executive, TrustMark
The impact of the Bonfield Review on consumer advice, protection, and standards for businesses delivering service solutions to the home

Short Break

11.45: The future of live, linear TV
Owen Jenkinson, Marketing Director, Freeview
A Freeview overview of strategy for a hybrid future.  How IP and mobile are complementary to DTT and not alternatives. Essential means of distribution, not the silver bullet that will kill DTT. 
12.30: 700 MHz reallocation
Kate Macefield, Programme Director, DUK
An update on plans as we head towards a pilot scheme for 700 MHz reallocation.

Lunch Break

14.00: DTG – R-Book 7 & RED in the face
Alex Buchan, Head of Wireless Technologies, Digital TV Group (DTG)
Peter Barnett, Director, Mandercom Ltd
A look at additions to R-Book 6 which will include Sky Q distribution and 700MHz information resulting in R-Book 7 – plus ‘RED in the face’ – ‘you will be if you are not compliant’.

14.45: Freesat
Andy Carr, Head of Supply Chain, Freesat
Wideband, the single cable and channel stacking

15.30: Sky TV & Sky Q
Gareth Jones, Distribution Manager, Sky
The independent installer registration scheme. Why it’s important to register your Sky-Q ready upgrades and installs to ensure your customer’s residents can take full advantage of the new generation of Sky services.

17.00: Close
