UPDATED: MAR 24th Event: The Evolution and Monetization of Mobile Video

This month’s event is sponsored by:

The Evolution and Monetization of Mobile Video. - part of the enabler track of the Ubiquitous Web series

Recent advances in mobile video players, streaming technologies and transcoding platforms are enabling the transmission and reception of video universally across fixed and mobile devices. This evolution is creating new ways to monetize mobile video and develop new mobile audiences, a new advertising base and potentially new types of social networks.

In parallel, mobile video broadcasting is being deployed with dedicated spectrum to relieve the bandwidth bottlenecks that will result when video streaming becomes widely popular over the mobile internet. How will these services complement each other?

MoMo-NY presents speakers from five emerging companies active in mobile video:

  • Daniel Torras - Vantrix
  • Bhaskar Roy - Qik
  • Bob Walczak - Ringleader Digital
  • Max Haot - Mogulus
  • Shaun Thanki - Actinamo

This will be followed by a panel of leading experts discussing the business models and investment opportunities in mobile video applications:

  • Panel Moderator: Lubna Dajani – Founder of Stratemerge, co-Founder MobileMonday-NY
  • Paul Walsh – Entrepreneur and CEO, Segala, UK.
  • Anton Wahlman – Managing Director, Communications Technology Research, ThinkEquity Partners LLC.
  • Eric Petajan – CTO – VectorMAX Corp, USA

Check out what’s hot on the local mobile scene. Don’t miss our exciting DEMO night on March 24.

Demo night showcases what Mobile Monday Mid-Atlantic is all about. Up close and personal with exciting mobile companies.  Demo night is hosted by Traffic.com and will be held right off the Chesterbrook exit of Route 202 at the VALLEY FORGE SUITES HOTEL, 888 Chesterbrook Blvd, Wayne (Chesterbrook) PA  19087 on Monday March 24.  Networking and reception starts at 5:45 PM and the event begins at 6:30PM.  After the event there will  be tours of the Traffic.com studio. RSVP - this event will fill-up!

RSVP now!  Registration is free.

For our last event, we had to close registration the day of the event.  Maybe because we held our event on a holiday (MLK day) people wanted to keep the party going.  An overflow event should be the case on March 24th as well - as Mobile Monday is the day after Easter Sunday - so come out to extend the festivities with us!

Demo night is where you can watch and interact with mobile co’s in the region as they unviel their latest and greatest.  From publicly traded companies, to start-ups looking for seed capital, demo night captures the upbeat vibe of the mobile space.

Here’s a sample of the exciting line-up for DEMO night:

  • LeaderBoard has an exclusive deal with the PGA (Professional Golf Association) to provide a way for tournament spectators to follow a match from a sanctioned mobile device. Cell phones are not allowed near the course (can you imagine Tiger misses a put because he’s distracted by your ring-tone).
  • Traffic.com lets you get the latest traffic information from your cell phone to lessen the pain of your commute. 
  • GoMobo lets you order and pay ahead of your arrival at busy restaurants like Subway, DunkinDonuts and yes, WaWa.
  • PhindMe’s platform let’s consumers interact with your business from mobile phones.
  • Accuity Mobile let’s companies manage mobile advertising with their robust platform.
  • Human Network Labs uses on screen icons to represent physical places linked to information, personal profiles or websites.
  • Crave mobile was created by local University of Penn students and uses natural language recognition, machine learning-algorithms, text-messaging and a user’s pre-existing social network to become seamlessly integrated in a person’s life.
