SYS-CON Events Announces iTVcon Internet TV Conference & Expo 2007

The first iTVcon Internet TV Conference & Expo will take place, June 25-26, 2007 in New York City

Just as 2006 was the year of streaming video and the birth of "Internet TV," 2007 is going to see the move beyond infancy toward the long-awaited and complete convergence of television and the Internet.

Now that broadband is available to more than 100 million households worldwide, every corporate Website and every media company will now provide video content, not to mention live and interactive video Webinars and on-demand Webcasts, in order to remain competitive.

Internet TV is wide open, it is global, and in true “Web 2.0” spirit it is a direct-to-consumer opportunity. 20 years ago the advent of desktop publishing tools opened the doors for the creation of some of today’s well-known traditional print media companies as well as revolutionized corporate print communications. Today, with maturing digital video production, the advent of fully-featured PVRs, and significant advances in streaming video technologies, Internet TV is here to stay and grow and will be a critical part of every Website and every business in the years to come.

It will also very rapidly become a huge challenge to network and cable television stations: Internet TV is about to change forever the $300BN television industry, too.

The Internet killed most of print media (even though many publishers don’t realize it yet), Google killed traditional advertising models, and Internet TV will revolutionize television the way we watch it today.

To help delegates be part of this change, SYS-CON Events announced that the first “iTVcon Internet TV Conference & Expo 2007” (www.itvcon.com) will take place June 25-26, 2007, in New York City.

The Call for Papers for the conference, sponsorship and exhibit opportunities are all available at the conference website.

Delegate registration and updated information can also be obtained at the conference website, www.itvcon.com.
