September Executive Strategy Webcast
To most technical types inside the television community, the term "digital" refers to serial digital video in facilities, digital compression on contribution and distribution links, or ATSC digital terrestrial transmission to the home. However, to most people outside the industry, and to a growing number of people inside the industry, digital television now means professional video content delivered over a network that features a one-to-one connection between the content and the consumer. Today digital television means video over the Internet, otherwise known by the popular colloquialism "over-the-top" (OTT). Soon, as major cable operators execute strategies to convert their cable systems to all IP and all unicast, this definition of digital will eventually apply to multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) as well. As it has in other industries such as music and print, digital has come to mean a radical new way of distribution, with new capabilities and challenges.
