Live@WWAC: Home videos

Got coax running into your home? Got copper? Got a tin can connected by a piece of waxed string? It doesn’t matter, you’ll still be able to get IP video into the home. Video has long been the domain of cable companies but with IP TV, high-quality video can now be brought into the home via a telco link. Shouldn’t surprise anyone as cablecos have begun to offer voice so with telcos going into video, I guess you could say that turn-about is fair play. The Cisco/Scientific Atlanta deal provides a complete end-to-end offering that will help any type of SP—cable or telco—bring video to the home. So now, it doesn’t matter what sort of broadband connection you have, there will still be nothing good to watch on TV.
