Mar 18, 2014

Ericsson’s (NASDAQ: ERIC) prediction of a Networked Society is being realized as rapid penetration of broadband, connected video capable devices and cloud-based services are driving consumer viewing habits to extend beyond the traditional living room experience and towards a new TV Anywhere era. Ericsson’s 2013 ConsumerLab research shows that the usage of mobile devices for TV and video viewing is increasing. 72% of those surveyed said that they watch online video using a mobile device at least weekly. At TV Connect 2014, March 18-20, London (Stand: 113), Ericsson will show how it is uniquely placed at the convergence of the media and IP worlds to drive the future of TV so that content owners, broadcasters and TV service providers can enrich consumer lives with personalized and relevant content anytime, anywhere and on any device.

Simon Frost, Head of TV Marketing, Ericsson said: "TV Connect will provide the perfect opportunity for us to outline how we are enabling our customers to deliver seamless TV Anywhere experiences. At TV Connect we will be showcasing our latest innovations across service creation, management and delivery as well as our unique ability to make every network video-centric and ready for new business models. With the shift to mobility, we will highlight how LTE Broadcast is enhancing video delivery and consumer experience. We will also be showcasing our cloud-enabled vision for Pay TV Anywhere services which delivers the agility needed to make our customers ultra competitive in a rapidly evolving all-IP world."

Among the highlights will be an outline of Ericsson’s Future TV Anywhere vision, which brings modern web technologies to the TV operator world, enabling operators to combine the quality of service and content depth of Pay TV with the interactivity and multi-screen capabilities of Over the Top (OTT) video. This will further be explored in Ericsson’s keynote presentation which will look at how TV service providers can deliver and innovate at web speed. In addition Ericsson will discuss how the latest advancements in video compression processing, operator CDN (Content Delivery Network) capabilities with the Media Delivery Network solution, and LTE Broadcast are transforming the opportunity to leverage video smart networks.
