Convergence Trends Drive Need for Improved Search & Discovery of Media

Followers of Parks Associates and their research have seen the explosive growth forecast for several significant consumer trends including home media storage, connected entertainment devices, cloud based media services, and ultra-portable touchscreen netbooks, MIDs and smartphones. eyecon, a sponsor of the upcoming CONNECTIONS Europe, operates at the intersection of these converging trends.

For the first time, eyecon will publicly demonstrate its iPhone and iTouch media experience browser at the International Broadcasters Conference (IBC) in Amsterdam, Sept 11th – 15th. The eyecon client enables users to discover, search, access and preview their media on their iPhone while also directing playback to connected televisions and digital audio systems.

eyecon’s media experience application includes an independent control point that automatically discovers and indexes all of a users movies, TV programming, music and photo libraries, whether stored locally or made available as a web service. It also discovers and indexes any connected home media players including TVs, digital picture frames and sound systems using standards like DLNA and UPnP. With the thin-client interface, consumers gain access to and control of their media wherever it resides, from wherever they’re at, and a unified controller for playback on any manufacturers connected players.

eyecon will be demonstrating it media experience browser in the Mobile/IPTV Zone at IBC, Hall 12, booth 203. Interested CE Vendors, Service Providers and Content Publishers can schedule a demo by contacting Bill Correll, VP Marketing.
