Comcast shows off 1Gbps Broadband /Filed under I-did-this ;)

Am only now catching up on all the online news around the Gigabit broadband demo that Comcast CEO Brian Roberts showed off last week at NCTA. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the video below (the video seeks to the point when he starts showing the 1 Gig prototype, though before that is the probably-cooler next gen Comcast set-top Box experience):

The demo was the end product of a LOT of work by a lot of folks and it was great to see it work without a hitch at the end. The videos downloader client itself was my responsibility and was written in Java Swing.

Here are some other links from around the web about the demo:

Also check out the official post on the Comcast demos at NCTA.

PS: This is the second demo I have worked on for NCTA, with the XFinityTV iPad app prototype last year. Looks like I am a veteran now ;).
