Brett Sappington, Sr. Director, Research, Parks Associates, will be presenting during the FierceCable hosted webinar "Can HDR Spark A Revival of the Pay-TV Market?" on Wednesday, May 25 at 2 PM Eastern time. Other participants include: Don Loheide, VP of Strategic Platforms, Turner; Don Eklund, SVP New Format Promotion, Sony Corporation of America; and Ken Goeller, Vice President, Product Strategy DeluxeOnDemand, Deluxe Entertainment Services Group.

The pay-TV market has hung its hopes for growth on a number of new display technologies over the years: HD, 3D and 4K, to name a few. Each of these technologies has be heralded as a potential major inflection point -- but few such technologies have ever lived up to the hype. Today, the newest growth contender is HDR (high dynamic range), a technology that promises to give both pay-TV and OTT viewers a greater range of color and lumosity. Meaning, whites will be whiter, blacks will be blacker, and the experience will be noticeably more vivid. Indeed, top executives from Comcast to Netflix have already trumpeted HDR as a more significant evolution of the TV experience than 4K -- and are promising HDR-capable content and services later this year. But how long will the move to HDR take? What kind of investments will service providers and vendors need to make to ensure HDR takes off? And where is the value in the in the market for both newer and established players? This webinar will probe the emerging momentum behind HDR and the potential obstacles the technology faces.

Stuart Sikes, President, Parks Associates, will be moderating the session "Venture Insights – A Look at the Business of IoT" on Monday, June 6, at 4:00 - 5:00 PM. IoT seems to be carving a broad swath across industries in its technological and business impact. Where Nest seemed to be revolutionary, it now needs to fight for market share, as competitors with new innovations abound. Where once only a few "IoT platforms" existed, now there are dozens to choose from, and the differentiating value is harder to discern. At the same time, we are seeing the tip of the iceberg of what IoT can do to transform the way we live and do business. The advent of product competition means the IoT market is getting "real." So how real are the investments? Where are venture capitalists, strategic investors and equity investors focusing attention? What do they see as the strongest areas for growth? This session will explore how money is being made in IoT, where the money is flowing, investment focus and what investors expect to see in the next 5 to 10 years.
