Colin Phillips

IPTV & CPE Solutions Architect | BT

Colin is a veteran of the digital TV & telecoms industries, and one of the drivers of innovation and change that marks their history. He worked in the labs on the fundamentals of video compression, helped create the first real-time broadcast encoders for digital multi-channel TV, led the set-top box software team for one of the first VOD trials in Europe, and then worked to deploy these technologies around the globe, with a focus on East Asia, UK, and mainland Europe. He’s also helped to pioneer broadband access, with the first FTTP and ADSL2+ deployments in the UK. Recently he has helped BT launch its YouView hybrid DTT & IP service, and was instrumental in getting the first Alexa enabled set-top box to market in the UK with EETV in 2017.
