Washington, DC -- The 2011 NAB Show will debut a new Super Session examining the new ways in which content is delivered to consumers, and the impact these developments have on television's future. The session, titled "Connected TV: Smart Devices, New Strategies," will be held Monday, April 11 at the NAB Show in Las Vegas.
Led by moderator Will Richmond, president and founder of Broadband Directions LLC, the session will include panelists Richard Buchanan, VP of Video Services, Comcast Media Center; Wilfred Martis, GM of Retail CE Products, Digital Home Intel Corporation; Susan Panico, senior director of PlayStation Network, Sony Computer Entertainment America; Jack Perry, founder and CEO, Syncbak; and Paul Wehrley, co-founder and COO, Clicker.
In addition to providing attendees with information on the latest developments in connected television and Internet video technologies, panelists will identify how content providers can expand their audience using new video platforms. New opportunities to present online material on television devices will also be discussed.
"Connected TVs are a game-changer because they move the online video experience into the living room TV for the first time," Richmond said. "By broadening online viewing to TVs, consumers can enjoy their favorite videos on their big-screen TVs, significantly changing the value proposition. On this Super Session panel, we'll be exploring the implications of this important market shift."
