About The Cable Center

Cable tells life’s great stories...we tell the great story of Cable.

Established as an educational nonprofit organization in 1985, The Cable Center plays an integral role in the cable industry. The Center's resources and information document cable's rich heritage. Programs at The Cable Center support and fuel the ongoing impact of the industry's historic innovations and influence.

The Cable Center is the home of the Cable Hall of Fame, recognizing individuals for their outstanding contributions to the industry, and the Barco library and Edward D. Breen Technical Archives, which house the world’s premier collection of cable-related information and resources. The Center's programs help professionals excel in their roles, provide accurate information to the press, educate academics about industry accomplishments and keep the story alive for future generations.

Through these programs as well as online exhibits, The Center tells the story of the cable industry and shares its legacy and contributions while supporting innovation for the industry’s future.

Our future-focused initiative, The Community of Innovators, connects the industry’s entrepreneurial past to its future through educational programs for local entrepreneurs, university students and industry intrapreneurs. Our seminal customer experience program, C5, provides a dynamic contribution to the industry's collective efforts to improve customer satisfaction. TCC Tech Studios offers an affordable, state-of-the-art facility, with options that range from studio space rental to fully produced video and audio recordings.

The Cable Center is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, but our presence extends around the globe wherever cable professionals work and wherever customers live. The Center's industry-wide mission and scope of service serves everyone involved in cable's sphere - operators, programmers, vendors, suppliers, professionals, nonprofit industry organizations, academics, the press and the public.
