Connecting with our International Cable Community at the 2019 SCTE Gala Awards
The annual SCTE UK Gala Awards Dinner & Dance was a smashing good time!

The Cable Center is honored to have attended and to partner with SCTE UK and connect with an international community of engineers. Did you know we currently offer two bursaries to the Intrapreneurship Academy with SCTE UK to help international cable industry engineers attend IA?

Scholar Kit Hughes Conducts Research in the Barco Library
CSU assistant professor of media and visual culture Kit Hughes visited The Cable Center's Barco Library last week to research experiments in educational television for a book she is currently writing. Entitled, Television at Work: Industrial Media and American Labor, Ms. Hughes' new book will be out later this year with Oxford University Press. We were delighted to have Ms. Hughes visit the library and be a part of her work!
