Tablets and Interactive Television: The Second Screen Revolution
While the concept of Smart TVs has been around for a few years, new innovations are beginning to expand the type of processing power and connectivity that allow for truly innovative multi-screen experiences with other devices. It is now common for several connected devices to be found in the living room, be it a Smart TV, set top box, digital media adapter, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Consumers are presented with a multitude of entertainment options and lifestyle services and have various devices at their fingertips to give them what they want, when they want it. This new and smarter experience is enabling consumers to enjoy familiar apps and interact with digital content on big and small screens, changing the way we interact with our home TV and tablet.William Frantz, Business Development Manager Qualcomm Daren Gill, Chief Product Officer – Veveo
Afternoon Keynote from Zillow: The Emerging Tablet Ecosystem
The tablet has sufficiently broken itself out of the third screen umbrella. Subsequently, no longer can smartphone apps be blown up to fit the tablet screen and be monetized in the same way. Tablets have their own user base; their own market share; different usage scenarios and user behavior patterns. Jeremy will discuss how Zillow treats tablets as a part of the business’s own app economy. He will also provide insight on how the device’s growing mass market appeal has increased the need for unique tablet marketing strategies from both a consumer experience and monetizing perspective. Looking forward, Jeremy will give insight on where the future of tablets is heading and how this could impact companies branching into the mobile space.
