When will the TV and the computer converge? Sooner than you think.

Uncategorized Posted Jan 20, 2011 by chenpr

Consumers are downloading TV shows, movies, music and photos on-demand to their computers at ever increasing rates. They want to watch what they want, when it’s convenient for them. IPTV is at the forefront of driving the convergence of TV and the computer. Next week affords an opportunity to hear a renowned group of speakers address the transformation at MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge’s event “IPTV: The Scrum for the Last Six Feet.” Registration is at http://www.mitforumcambridge.org/events/iptv-markcuban/#register

The line up of speakers includes Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks and Chairman of HDNet; Woody Benson of Prism VentureWorks; Will Richmond, editor/publisher of VideoNuze; Avner Ronen, CEO of Boxee; and Paul Sagan, CEO of Akamai. It promises to be a fascinating evening, with a chance for networking after the event.

Computers and TVs = one device. What will the living room of the future look like?

CHEN is actively involved with media relations for the MIT Enterprise Innovation Series and this promises to be one of the best. It will sell out quickly.
