A Conversation with Chris Bowick, CTO of Cox: Bandwidth, Part 1
In this first segment of a December 2008 interview, Chris Bowick, then SVP Engineering and CTO for Cox, discusses the company’s decision to choose bandwidth expansion to 1 GHz, rather than digital-to-analog (DTA) and switched digital video (SDV) alternatives. Why: To make sure there’s enough room for everything that’s coming. Directed and produced by the fabulous David Knappe with equally fabulous Joe Bondulich on camera and lighting.
