A European conference will consider the challenges and the potential rewards of delivering video over telephone networks.

TelecomVideo Europe, now in its third year, takes place amid increasing industry interest in IPTV or internet protocol television. Europe is seen by many analysts as a key market for the introduction of these new services.

The three-day conference will bring together operators, software and hardware vendors, content owners and aggregators, analysts and consultants. The conference programme includes separate tracks for technology and business models.

One of the official media partners for this event, informitv will be hosting a session on The Right Application Mix, looking at the various constituents of the consumer offering, including video on demand, personal video recording, and interactive services.

TelecomVideo 2005 Europe takes place 10-12 May in Amsterdam.
