Counting down to Evolving Connectivity 2018

We’re less than one month away from our industry’s only national show.

Evolving Connectivity 2018 – 'Media Delivery of the Future’ – highlights all that is new and will be new for content delivery across the UK.  For 40 years the CAI has led the signal reception trade.  From simple UHF aerial installation, MATV distribution through the advent of satellite and SMATV to IRS and now the massive growth of moving pictures via internet protocols. 

The great and the good of the UK and Europe’s manufacturers and distributors form the main hub of the show with the exhibition supported by keynote talks delivered by the leaders of today’s broadcasters, operators and regulators.  Outgoing CAI Senior Executive, Tim Jenks opens and comperes the talking slots with a welcome to his successor at the CAI – Peter Sealey who formally takes over when Tim retires in June.  Peter will outline his vision for the future of the CAI before Richard Lindsay-Davies, chief executive at the Digital TV Group tells us how he sees the future of TV. 

After a short break DMSL/at800 chief executive, Ben Roome will update us on how the mitigation is unfolding with 700MHz clearance now well underway.  Directly following Ben, Graham Plumb, Ofcom’s Prinicpal Broadcast Specialist will give the regulatory view of 700MHz plus other regulatory issues that have arisen over the past year.  After lunch Freeview’s marketing director, Owen Jenkinson will give his thoughts on the future of Freeview and terrestrially delivered TV.  Then Thomas Wrede, SES Vice President of New Technology and Standards will look at how UHD TV is progressing in the broadcast market and the associated new channel stacking switch technology.  Subject to demand we hope to sum up the day’s proceedings in a panel forum where you get to ask questions of the speakers you hear during the day.
