New Telecom Event Launches At NAB2007

The National Association of Broadcasters has announced Telecom@NAB2007, a new conference series and exhibition for telecom professionals and network operators. Leveraging NAB's decades of expertise in the delivery of video and audio content to consumer audiences, the new event is co-produced by telecom industry consultants Lightbulb Communications, headed by former USTelecom executive John Abel. The new conference series takes place April 16-18, in conjunction with NAB2007 in Las Vegas, NV.

Telecom@NAB2007 addresses the needs of telecom professionals, telecom business entrepreneurs, and network operators who are deploying next generation video networks or who plan to do so in the future. Telecom professionals attending the conference series will tap into the world's largest marketplace of professional electronic media tools and technologies, and interact with content owners and creators representing the broadcasting and film communities.

"Telecom@NAB2007 is about digital video technology, learning, networking with other telecom professionals, and developing joint business ventures leveraging the content of local broadcasters everywhere," said Lightbulb president and CEO John D. Abel. "It is also the place where telecom service providers can find out what their competitors in the video marketplace are doing."

There are five distinct elements to Telecom@NAB2007: telecom technology papers, a broadband videoconference, a telecom video production crash course, telecom supplier exhibits, and show floor tours.
