Confirmation de l'inauguration de TV Connect 2013 par Electronic Arts

Richard Hilleman, responsable de la création chez Electronic Arts, studio de jeux vidéos de premier plan, prononcera le discours d'inauguration du TV Connect de cette année (anciennement baptisé Forum mondial IP&TV). M. Hilleman donnera le coup d'envoi de cette conférence-exposition de trois jours, qui se tient pour la neuvième année consécutive, et qui s'intéressera particulièrement à l'évolution des jeux vidéo en ligne dans le contexte de la convergence de l'écosystème du divertissement connecté.

M. Hilleman, champion du jeu vidéo, développe des produits pour Electronic Arts et promeut la marque EA Sports depuis plus de 20 ans. En étroite collaboration avec des concepteurs de jeux vidéo, il a lancé la production de jeux largement plébiscités, notamment Madden Football, décrit comme le jeu le mieux vendu de l'histoire des jeux en Amérique du Nord.

L'accent mis par TV Connect sur les jeux vidéo se traduit par l'intervention spéciale de M. Hilleman, qui dirigera l'attention sur l'importance du rôle des jeux dans l'évolution de la télévision connectée. M. Hilleman organisera également une table ronde qui explorera le rôle clé des nouveaux acteurs dans la motivation de l'expérience utilisateur. D'autres dirigeants du secteur y participeront, notamment Pascal De Mul, responsable mondial des partenariats chez Spotify et Jeff G Weber, président du contenu et des ventes publicitaires chez AT&T.

Interrogé sur le rôle des jeux vidéos au sein de l'écosystème en évolution du divertissement connecté, M. Hilleman a déclaré : « La télévision connectée dispose de plusieurs défenseurs motivés par des objectifs différents. Aux États-Unis et en Europe, elle tente de se faire une place sur un écran déjà chargé de contenus divers, notamment la console de jeux. Dans ce cas, le marché de la télévision connectée devra trouver une niche, ou délocaliser une activité existante. Dans certains autres territoires, il existe davantage d'espace libre disponible pour la télévision connectée. Elle peut y trouver sa place et définir sa propre proposition de valeur.

« Ce secteur est en mouvement permanent avec l'ajout de nouvelles techniques de jeux et de processus créatifs innovants. La courbe d'apprentissage sera rude pour tout le monde », a conclu M. Hilleman.

Cette année, TV Connect présente Gaming Connect, une session gratuite qui se tiendra le premier jour dans le cadre du Connected Innovation Theatre, et qui rappelle le thème de la manifestation. Les visiteurs y découvriront les possibilités offertes par le divertissement concurrentiel aux prestataires de service, aux opérateurs, aux fournisseurs de contenu, aux développeurs de jeux vidéos, aux réseaux de médias sociaux et aux éditeurs. Les fournisseurs sont également attendus : ils profiteront des dernières nouveautés en matière d'espace de diffusion, d'innovation sur le nuage et de réseaux de jeux vidéos, et verront comment ces innovations peuvent améliorer l'expérience de jeu en temps réel dans un monde aux multiples plateformes.

Certains partenaires du secteur des jeux vidéos ont déjà fait part de leur soutien à cette manifestation, notamment TIGA, l'Association internationale des développeurs de jeux vidéos (International Game Developers Association - IGDA), Develop Magazine, Pocket Gamer et Branded Entertainment. Kate Edwards, directeur exécutif de l'IGDA, souligne l'importance de cet événement : « Les jeux vidéos se diffusent de plus en plus largement à travers les populations, les lieux géographiques et les plateformes. L'IGDA est donc ravie de s'associer au Gaming Connect à l'occasion du TV Connect. Il s'agit d'une chance sans pareil pour élargir l'horizon de notre association vers de nouveaux membres et pour renforcer nos relations au-delà de la communauté du développement des jeux vidéos strictement dite. »

La manifestation aura lieu à l'Olympia Exhibition Centre de Londres du 19 au 21 mars 2013.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
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. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
