What does the digital home look like? Business forecasters predict that the digital home will be the ultimate nexus for internet access/news, entertainment, and personal/home management, complete with a vision of a singular console providing a simple, personalized interface. But how will this vision come about? Who will be the key players in this new battlefield—content providers, service providers, consumer electronic devices?
These two Tech@Tuck events examined how new technologies are transforming the home.
In Intel in the Digital Home, Ted Odell, Strategic Planning Director for Intel's Digital Home Group, shared his company's vision for the future of technology in the home. In The Emerging Digital Home, the center organized product demonstrations that featured the latest devices and software for the digital home, including products from Microsoft, Apple, Dell, and Slingbox. This was followed by a panel discussion on "Delivering Entertainment to the Digital Home." The following senior industry executives explored trends, developments, and partnerships in the increasingly competitive home space:
- Glenn Britt, Chairman & CEO, Time Warner Cable
- Jim Sanduski, SVP for Digital Video & Audio Product Marketing, Samsung
- Kevin Schofield, GM of Strategy & Communications, Microsoft Research
- Russell Wolff, EVP & Managing Partner, ESPN International
- Moderator: Bruce Leichtman, President, Leichtman Research Group
The Center for Digital Strategies and the Tuck School wish to thank all our participants, panelists, and those who came to listen and learn!
