During informal polling of CableLabs Winter Conference attendees, TVplus was named the best new idea most likely to succeed in the cable market place. The company, formerly known as Spot411, displayed audio recognition technology to allow any Internet-enabled device with a microphone to automatically identify a TV program or movie that is currently on TV.

The technology demonstration was part of the Innovation Showcase segment of the winter conference. The showcase contained 11 companies, each of which had 10 minutes to explain and then demonstrate its technology.

Other participants were Alcatel-Lucent, BigBand Networks, Cisco, Gracenote, Motorola, RGB, RightScale, Sandvine, Technicolor, and VideoSurf. Key trends of this year's showcase were technologies to search video content, cloud computing and IP migration strategies.
