In addition, there will be a variety of advanced technology demonstrations including Cloud DVR, CVP-2, multi-screen, 4K, NCAS downloadable security and the new Alticast Cloud-based Application Store.

"Consumers want personalized, increasingly interactive TV experiences that can be enjoyed in the home or on the go and Alticast's software solutions give operators complete control in deciding how and what they deliver to their subscribers," said John Carlucci, Chief Technology Officer, Alticast US. "The Cable Show attendees will be able to get up close and personal with several demonstrations that not only leverage the RDK integrated software bundle endorsed by many of the world's top cable operators, but also highlight the technological strides Alticast is making to enable a reliable, state-of-the-art TV experience."

Alticast will have the following demonstrations, among several others, available at The Cable Show:

  • The Alticast HDMI Media Express works in conjunction with a home gateway, enabling service providers to securely deliver live and on-demand programing to TVs in the home or on the go.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
