A group of cable technology’s most notable thought leaders – Steve Reynolds, SVP customer premise equipment and home networking for Comcast; Jay Rolls, SVP technology for Cox; Mike Hayashi, EVP architecture, development, and engineering for Time Warner Cable; and John Chapman, Cisco Fellow – will headline the Technology Leadership Roundtable at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo Oct. 20 in New Orleans.

Reynolds, Rolls, Hayashi, and Chapman will discuss how cable network evolution can keep pace with the needs of the “Digital Consumer” during the second half of the Opening General Session. The panel, which will be moderated by technology journalist Leslie Ellis, will explore the impact of Internet Protocol technology on the cable landscape and how operators can migrate traditional linear and on-demand video to IP for unified presentation to subscribers.

Earlier in the program, Larry Socher, global lead in Accenture’s Network Practice, Communications & High Tech Operating Group, will moderate an engineering session that will address ways that cable can enable content to be delivered to a wide range of devices in the networked home. Presenters will include Jean-Christophe McKeown, managed digital home lead for Accenture; Dr. Robert Howald, CTO Office, Motorola; Edmond Shapiro, VP, project delivery, Americas for NDS; and industry consultant Dr. Walt Ciciora.
