[itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording of the TVOT NYC 2013 session, "Cable RDK Fireside." The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"Earlier this year, Time Warner Cable and Comcast formed RDK Management, LLC to manage and expand adoption of the Reference Design Kit (RDK), software for set-top boxes that is designed to accelerate the deployment of next-generation video devices and services. In this session, Time Warner Cable's SVP of Technology, Matt Zelesko, sits down with Multichannel News' Technology Editor, Jeff Baumgartner, to discuss why attendees, programming network and agency executives, as well as app developers, should be tracking the roll-out of the RDK and the impact a common technology stack could have on the people building the television experience of the future. The conversation will include what the RDK is and what it is not, how RDK Management, LLC believes the RDK can shorten the design-deploy-deliver cycle and why it matters outside the STB supply chain, the path to converged gateway boxes, and implications for TV operators around the world. Zelesko will also look ahead at the goals and challenges facing the RDK in 2014. A Special Guest [Stephen Goldstein, VP and GM, STB at Samsung] will provide insight into the vendor's experience developing for the RDK."
