Digital Hollywood Fall 2008

 Who:   Mark Hyland, vice president of marketing, QuickPlay Media, alongside executives from Jaman, Hewlett-Packard, Veveo, Diagonal View, blip.tv and Centris.  What:  Movies, TV & Video Programming to the Consumer - All Video All the Time: Broadband, Mobile, IPTV and DVD - Movies, TV and video programming delivered via broadband Internet is an industry on the verge of busting out. SVOD, VOD - features delivered via the Internet, the PC and the set-top box - are very much a part of our future. Central to this anticipated future is the expectation that the PVR, the Personal Video Recorder, will become a fixture in the next generation of all home PCs and in Set-tops. Add to that a wireless connection between the PC/PVR and the Set-top or TV, and it's easy to see how the downside of IP delivery of rich media will become a thing of the past (or at least a secondary consideration) as consumers download content to the PVR and play it back in crisp, full screen DVD quality. Under this scenario, Internet SVOD will become a full competitor to SVOD via cable or satellite. Panelists will discuss how new VOD features are reshaping the landscape of the film industry.  When:  October 29, 2008 at 12:30 p.m. PDT  Where: Digital Hollywood Fall, Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, Santa Monica, California 

Thursday, November 13

TelcoTV 2008

 Who:   Mark Hyland, vice president of marketing, QuickPlay Media, alongside executives from Centris, Openet and RipCode.  What:  Understanding Mobile TV Consumer Expectation and Behavior - Understanding how and why subscribers consume Mobile TV will be critical for effective business planning and execution. Panelists will address what types of content are gaining traction and how consumers are interacting with it.  When:  November 13, 2008 at 1:00 p.m. PDT  Where: TelcoTV 2008, Anaheim Convention Center, Orange County, California
