content. The discussion will focus on the effects of IP Video, Datacasting and DSMCC on the delivery, quantity and nature

technologies hold as they compete to support the delivery of content

each technology will play in developing broadband video infrastructure?
• To what extent will this competition produce a win-win for all technology
providers, and to what extent will it be a zero-sum game?
• What relative economic returns will entertainment and data offer the
operators of broadband video pipelines?
• How will IP Video, Datacasting and DSMCC affect the manner in which
content creators distinguish themselves in an increasingly crowded
• What role will the consumer play in identifying successful broadband
