Congrats to Comcast Spotlight VP/Technology Paul Woidke, who became the second recipient of the SCTE Excellence in Standards Award with this week’s announcement from the SCTE. Woidke joins Alan Amato of Times Fiber Amphenol, who was last year’s inaugural recipient of an award aimed at underscoring the contributions of the otherwise largely unsung heroes in the SCTE’s standards activities. For an interview with Woidke, who heads the SCTE Digital Video Subcommittee (DVS) Working Group Five, which is responsible for digital program insertion (DPI) standards, see the current issue of Communications Technology http://www.ct- magazine.com/archives/ct/0506/0506_qawith.htm. The issue also contains this feature http://www.ct-magazine.com/archives/ct/0506/0506_gettingpersonalwith.htm on the intersection of DPI and video on demand technologies.
