Forty-seven million European households will have connected TV by 2014

Parks Associates will bring together executives from Ralink Technology, Rovi, Gigle Networks, Visiware, and Samsung Electronics Europe to participate in a special panel at the CONNECTIONS™ Europe technology summit next month.

CONNECTIONS™ Europe will address key issues for manufacturers, operators, and content developers on value-added services, mobile data applications, Web-enabled CE devices, and consumer access to video content.

The special session “Consumers and Connected Consumer Electronics” will be Monday, November 15, at 4:45 p.m. and feature an interactive panel addressing new business models, key applications for Web-enabled CE, and technology trends in the design of connected solutions.
