NCTC hosted its Winter Educational Conference in New Orleans last month, boasting record attendance of nearly 800 operators, suppliers and tech partners. Now in its 16th year, the conference expanded from its tech focus to include a marketing component. NCTC announced two major initiatives at the conference: 1) An RFI/RFP process for scalable advanced video platforms to enable competitive features at much lower costs than existing delivery systems; 2) A business plan for a cloud-based VOD service that will enable more content, better quality, improved advertising revenues and lower costs—benefiting both content providers and operators. Both initiatives are key areas of focus for NCTC’s technology division for 2017. Expect an update at NCTC and ACA’s Independent Show, slated for July 23-26 in Indianapolis.
