Net Neutrality Hot Debate Expected at CES 2010

At the MPEGIF Master Class titled “TV X.0 Present and Future” at CES a key part of the presentations and panel discussions will concern Net Neutrality and whether it is a viable concept given the infrastructural investment being made by operators around the world. The Master Class will address the complex relationships between content owners, service operators and programmers; legal precedents and challenges that face them will be explored.

The MPEGIF Master Class at CES is the latest in the long running MPEGIF Master Class series that has been a cornerstone of the NAB and IBC conferences each year. The Master Class will be held on Friday, January 8th, 2010 between 9:00am and 12:30pm in the Las Vegas Convention Centre (N260). This unique conference session will bring together industry experts representing the most influential leaders in next generation video entertainment, multimedia and television.

The CES 2010 MPEGIF Master Class showcases senior executives and experts with a track record of pioneering the adoption of new advanced technology and innovative service offerings bringing to bare new business models.

Sebastian Moeritz, President of MPEGIF and CEO at dicas. “Net neutrality is a subject of extreme relevance – it must be addressed, considered and managed by all industry participants accordingly.”
