TV Everywhere: the phrase is self-explanatory, or is it? Is there a difference between what providers understand it to mean and what viewers expect it to mean? And in any case, what needs to be done in order to make it work? Can there be a consistent interface across all of the devices users? Will premium content bowers want content protected by conditional access systems streamed out to iPads and other devices around the home? These are the questions that this RapidTV News round table, comprising three experts in the TV Everywhere industry will set out to answer.

Digital Signage

Amidst all the media clutter and social marketing mayhem, there's one platform out there that's been quietly maturing over the past few years. You may know Digital Out Of Home (or DOOH) as digital-place-based media, digital signage, LED billboards, or even the wonky VHS machine or DVD player showing a product demo at your local retailer.

Thankfully, DOOH has developed in leaps and bounds since then and has become a vibrant, innovative industry with huge potential for advertisers and marketers. Put simply, DOOH is any digital screen located in an out-of-home environment and showing customised programming, content, or advertising.

Digital Signage is the technology behind DOOH and we are lucky enough in the industry to have in Intel Corporation, Harris Broadcast and NEC, three large corporates who care about its growth, education and marketing. Together we have put together a series of events which we call the Digital Signage Round Table where the panelists discuss some of the issues and challenges facing the industry. This one, recorded in front of a live audience was recorded at Screenmedia Expo in London in May 2011.

Over the past few years we have seen an enormous change in the relationship between the broadcast and gambling worlds. Regulation in Europe is now starting to change radically, presenting barriers and opportunities to existing or would be operators. In the UK advertising gambling services has been permitted on TV for some time, and with the shift in Ofcom's licensing to recognise gambling as Teleshopping we now have clearer opportunity for broadcasters and gambling operators to work together to bring new transactional revenue generating content to TV audiences.

In this discussion, we examine the commercial, technical and regulatory developments together with the opportunities that both broadcasters and gambling service operators are faced with globally.
