Cisco's Mike Volpi on IPTV

From Business Week Cisco's Mike Volpi on IPTV:

"How will IPTV be different than what's currently available?

It will be different in three ways:
  • There will be a lot more user-created video, especially as consumer video recorders and editing technology get better. Just as we reached a tipping point with digital cameras, we'll soon reach a tipping point with digital video recorders.
  • And there will be a lot more ad hoc video content, which is slightly dumbed down but still feels like it was professionally produced. It will be easy and cheap to make, like reality TV.
  • And there will be professional content, but it will allow much more room for user preferences. People will be able to select camera angles or different endings for a show."
