SM East Session: From the Web to Your TV: New Media Delivery Revolution

We have some great sessions at the Streaming Media East show in May talking about Internet TV.

One of the sessions, moderated by Jose Castillo (who has a great blog at thinkjose.com) will discuss how AppleTV, TiVo, Slingbox, and a host of other hardware and software products are starting to deliver new media content from the Web to TVs. The session will discuss what latest devices are being used to deliver consumer content and how content creators big and small are utilizing these new tools. Also discussed will be how online content is being treated differently from traditional broadcast content and what potential business models are being created for the monetization of consumer content. The panelists include:

– Tara Maitra, VP, GM, Programming, TiVo
– Bijan Sabet, General Partner, Spark Capital
– Jim Funk, VP, Marketing, Akimbo
– Fred McIntyre, SVP, AOL Video

What topics or points would you like to see discussed at this session? Please include them in the comments section.

  • We are most interested in the prospect and timeline for interactive applications. What is on the drawing board for applications that will interactively engage the consumer over TV? Will interactive consumer services work? We know there are some great possibilities for medicine, education and social services. Is there economic incentive to develop these?
