During Cable Connection next week in Denver, The Cable Center will host tours of its facility throughout the week. Attendees can take free public tours from October 26-30 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The one-hour tours will give visitors an opportunity to see The Cable Center’s exhibits, learn about its programs and initiatives, and explore its historical archives filled with photos, technical equipment, marketing materials and other artifacts.
In the spirit of Halloween…. visitors can venture down to the basement of The Cable Center and explore shelves and shelves of legacy cable equipment.
“Dave Willis put the display together, which was anchored by donations from the SCTE membership,” said Larry Satkowiak, President and CEO of The Cable Center. “When we have done tours with SCTE members in the past, it is interesting to see how the senior engineers pass this incredible legacy on to others.”
Visitors can also view The Cable Center’s new Cable Hall of Fame exhibit, the industry’s only permanent exhibit honoring its inspiring leaders, with highlights and commentary from The Cable Center’s Oral History Collection. The Cable Center also features interactive kiosks, and nearly 70 miles of coaxial cable deployed throughout the building to power hundreds of video displays and operational components.
The Cable Center is located at 2000 Buchtel Boulevard, on the University of Denver campus, across the street from a Denver light rail station.
