INTX Infographic & Trivia: Test Your Cable Industry Knowledge to Win a Prize

As the future of the cable industry takes center stage during INTX this week, Mosaik Solutions offers attendees an opportunity to look at the industry’s past for clues into what the future may hold next.

In partnership with The Cable Center, Mosaik developed “A Cable Story” infographic. “A Cable Story” visualizes the industry’s top historic events, including mergers and buyouts, acquisitions, key leaders and influencers, technological innovations and legislation that molded the cable market to what it is today. Take a look here.

The infographic also gives INTX attendees a chance to play a fun trivia game and a win a prize. During the three days of the show, at 9AM, 11AM and 1PM, INTX attendees will be asked questions about the icons on the graphic via Twitter. To participate, follow Mosaik on Twitter and watch out for #acablestory and #INTX2015 hashtags.

The first user to provide the correct answer will win a $10 Starbucks e-gift card. Winners will be contacted via Twitter DM to receive further instructions on how to collect their prize.

Internet + Television + Expo = INTX

Since NCTA’s move from The Cable Show to INTX, many have been left wondering, what exactly will this year’s show encompass?

As the IoT has taken off recently, there have been more opportunities to integrate apps into the overall cable video experience. As a result, NCTA has shifted the focus of the show to encompass the growing digital landscape throughout the industry as opposed to just cable. This year’s event will bring the two even closer together to cover the latest happenings in OTT, wireless integration and overall operations.

Here are a few things to expect at this year’s show:

  • The show floor, now called INTX marketplace will feature about 300 exhibitors. The area has been “reimagined,” and will feature “boulevards, plazas and circles” at various “intersections.”
  • In addition to keynote discussions among top industry executives, the annual Spring Technical Forum will dive deeper into tech than it has in previous years. The lineup consists of 43 technical papers that will be presented at eight different sessions.
  • NCTA will also sponsor a 24-hour hackathon, INTXHAK, which will challenge developers to create apps from scratch using the latest APIs, tools, data and content from a huge list of today’s leading tech, media and entertainment companies.
