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 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...

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
