Electronic Arts eröffnet die TV Connect 2013

Richard Hilleman, Chief Creative Officer des großen Videospielestudios Electronic Arts, wird die Eröffnungsrede bei der diesjährigen TV Connect (vorher bekannt als IP&TV World Forum) halten. Hilleman gibt damit den Startschuss für die dreitägige Konferenz und Ausstellung, die mittlerweile in ihrem neunten Jahr veranstaltet wird und deren Fokus hauptsächlich auf der Evolution des Online-Gamings innerhalb des konvergierenden Connected-Entertainment-Ökosystems liegen wird.

Hilleman ist eine bekannte Größe im Gaming-Bereich. Er entwickelt seit über 20 Jahren Produkte für Electronic Arts und treibt zudem die „EA Sports“-Marke voran. Durch seine enge Zusammenarbeit mit Spieledesignern war er maßgeblich an der Produktion von enorm erfolgreichen Spielereihen beteiligt. Dazu zählt auch Madden Football, das in Nordamerika zum meistverkauften Titel der Spielegeschichte avancierte.

Der Gaming-Fokus der TV Connect spiegelt sich auch in Hillemans Eröffnungsrede wider, welche den Ausbau der Rolle des Gaming bei der Weiterentwicklung des vernetzten Fernsehens näher beleuchten wird. Hillemans Eröffnungsrede wird dabei von einer von ihm geführten Podiumssitzung begleitet, die näher auf die wichtige Rolle der neuen Spieler bei der Verbesserung der Benutzererfahrung eingeht. An dieser Sitzung werden auch weitere Industriegrößen teilnehmen, wie Pascal De Mul, leitender Verantwortlicher für Partnerschaften bei Spotify, und Jeff G Weber, Präsident der Abteilung Content and Advertising Sales bei AT&T.

Hillemans kommentiert die Rolle des Gamings innerhalb des sich ständig weiterentwickelnden Entertainment-Ökosystems wie folgt: „Das vernetzte Fernsehen hat mehrere Befürworter, die unterschiedliche Ziele verfolgen. In den USA und Europa wird versucht, die Aufmerksamkeit auf einen Bildschirm zu lenken, der bereits zahlreiche andere Inhalte bietet, die unter anderem durch Spielkonsolen bereitgestellt werden. In diesem Fall muss der Markt für vernetztes Fernsehen ein Schlupfloch finden oder ein bestehendes Geschäft verdrängen. In einigen anderen Territorien hat das vernetztes Fernsehen einen größeren Spielraum, um seinen Platz auf dem Markt zu finden und sein eigenes Wertangebot zu festigen.

„Es handelt sich hier um einen sehr schnellen Markt, der insbesondere auf den technischen Mitteln und kreativen Prozessen aus dem Gaming-Bereich aufbaut. Es wird daher ein gewisser Lernprozess für alle Beteiligten erforderlich sein“, schließt Hilleman.

In diesem Jahr umfasst das Event eine gleich am ersten Tag veranstaltete „Gaming Connect“-Sitzung, die als Teil des Connected Innovation Theatre näher auf das Thema der Show eingeht. Hier können die Besucher mehr über die Möglichkeit erfahren, die sich den Dienstleistern, Betreibern, Inhalteanbietern, Spieleentwicklern, sozialen Netzwerken und Herausgebern durch wettbewerbsfähiges Entertainment bietet. Auch die Anbieter sind herzlich willkommen, da die neuesten Erkenntnisse vorgestellt werden, wie die Art der Bereitstellung, Cloud-Innovation und Gaming-Netzwerke dazu beitragen können, die Echtzeit-Erfahrung in einer von mehreren Plattformen geprägten Welt zu verbessern.

Zu den Gaming-Partnern, die bereits ihre Unterstützung für das Event zugesichert haben, gehören TIGA, die International Game Developers Association (IGDA), Develop Magazine, Pocket Gamer und Branded Entertainment. Die IGDA-Geschäftsführerin Kate Edwards betont die Bedeutung der Veranstaltung: „Da das Gaming eine immer weitere Verbreitung über demografische Gruppen, Regionen und Plattformen hinweg findet, begrüßt die IGDA die Möglichkeit, als Partner der ,Gaming Connect‘-Veranstaltung bei der TV Connect aufzutreten. Die Möglichkeiten, den Horizont unserer Mitglieder zu erweitern und unsere Verbindungen über die Grenzen der Spieleentwicklungsgemeinschaft zu erweitern, sind für uns von unschätzbarem Wert.“

Die Veranstaltung findet vom 19. bis 21. März 2013 im Olympia Exhibition Centre in London statt.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
