MEDIA ADVISORY: Veveo CMO to Present "The Evolution of the TV Experience" at Digital Media Forum

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2013) -

Veveo is a leading provider of semantic technologies that bridge the usability gap in connected devices and applications with intelligent search, discovery and personalization solutions. The company's patented technology is currently deployed on more than 100 million connected devices worldwide through leading OEMs and Tier 1 service providers, and 45 million TVs supported by payTV operators in the US and Canada.

Sam Vasisht, Chief Marketing Officer of Veveo, has more than 15 years of experience leading marketing and product management for organizations including Motorola, Bose, Real Networks, On2 Technologies (Google), and various startups. Sam has deep expertise in the digital media industry, as well as a broad background incorporating cable, Internet and wireless media.

Sam Vasisht will present "The Evolution of the TV Experience." Vasisht will detail the paradigm shift that has occurred with the use of graph-based semantic technologies to achieve next-generation user experiences in web, mobile and enterprise applications, and how a similar shift is required in the world of television and video as the thousands of VoD titles, hundreds of linear TV channels, and millions of online video titles is creating an increasingly complex navigation, search and discovery environment. As a result, traditional menu-driven search and navigation prove difficult and cumbersome. Graph-based semantic technologies can create intuitive discovery and access to large amounts of programming, including bridging across multiple sources and program types, thereby providing the much needed next-generation television and video experiences required.
