The event will give delegates the chance to see why the annual IPTV leadership report, published earlier this month by the Multimedia Research Group (MRG), ranked Tandberg Television as the leading IP video head-end supplier in Asia, as well as in EMEA and rest of world.

Worldwide Tandberg Television claims to have been involved in more than 160xDSL and FTTH deployments and there are over 2 million subscribers currently viewing IPTV due to the company’s technology, states an official release.

“Asia has always been a very important market for us,” says Tandberg Television Asia Pacific EVP & GM Graham Cradock. “According to research from In-Stat the Asia-Pacific IP video services market will grow nearly 80 per cent per year between now and 2010, with Asia accounting for half of all worldwide IPTV subscribers by the end of 2009. We’ve been working with IPTV operators in the region for over five years and our market-leading technology is allowing telcos to deploy IPTV services right across the continent, from Dubai to Osaka and from Delhi to Shanghai.”

Tandberg Television EVP Corporate Development Jim Olson will deliver a keynote speech: Beyond IPTV – Why Plain Old Television Won’t Cut it for Telcos at 9:10 on 29 September at IPTV World Forum Asia.
