Speakers Wanted: “Broadband-Enabled Devices Panel” At SM East
I just had two companies both cancel their speaking spots next week at the Streaming Media East show on a session entitled "The Impact Of Broadband-Enabled TVs, Gaming Consoles And Devices". I don't know why companies in that segment of the market are so flaky as this seems to happen each year with the devices panel.
I'm now looking for two new speakers for this session and am open to all suggestions. Below are the details, please contact me via e-mail only, as I have the flu and am not answering the phone. Thanks.

With the number of new broadband-enabled TVs and Blu-ray players expected to be sold, along with devices such as the Xbox, Roku, TiVo, and PS3, consumers now have many ways to get their video fix. So what are the new business models that will be created from these new devices? What hurdles need to be overcome so that content can be monetized for multiple platforms? Explore with this panel the role of current consumer entertainment devices in this new convergent world and how these devices will play together to offer a superior video experience.
