Seated on (and standing around) benches within a display that resembled an outdoor park setting, the onlookers were getting ready for the next live presentation from The Park – a novel, live-demonstration stage that made its debut at The Cable Show 2011.
For three days, The Park featured back-to-back demos, interviews, announcements and dialogue around some of the latest cable-powered innovations in the marketplace. We learned about new applications in mobile services, tablet video, set-top advancements and more.
