CableLabs is gearing up for CableNet 2001 and its companion display, CableNet Interactive. The 10,000-square-foot exhibit within the Western Show in Anaheim in November will feature a broadband evolution theme.
The exhibit, sponsored by CableLabs and the California Cable Television Association, is intended to demonstrate the potential of cable's broadband network and the products and services it entails, the sponsors say.
The interactive display will use hands-on means to "show the many sides to broadband interactivity," including enhanced TV, hypervideo, personal video interactive applications, 3D gaming, home wireless solutions, streaming, messaging and online voting, CableLabs says. Exhibitors in the interactive segment include Microsoft, Motorola, nCube, OpenTV and Sun Microsystems.
CableNet will display such products as interoperable advanced high-speed cable modems with tiered data services capabilities, digital set-top boxes and IP voice communications services. Participants in this segment include Broadcom, Cisco Systems and Ericsson, CableLabs says.
