Personalized Certificate for all Attendees

The cable industry has talked up interactivity for years, but now it’s finally happening. And consumers—trained by years of using the Internet on a variety of devices—finally seem ready to take the plunge. But how will interactivity and advanced advertising work in the real world? What's the role of EBIF? What do advertisers really want? And what’s the status of cable’s efforts to satisfy those needs? And most importantly, how can cable operators and programmers use interactivity to increase revenue from advertisers, subscribers and perhaps even other untapped sources?

In this Webinar, we’ll tackle the following areas:

  • An overview of the EBIF spec and how it can enable interactive widgets and advertising.
  • Examples of ways interactivity could work in terms of polling, audience participation in shows and advertising messaging.
  • Ways that deep-dive ad telescoping can use Web-based data on TV.
  • Projections of how players can leverage online, VOD and mobile platforms through the TV screen.
  • Examples of how programmers and advertisers can work together.

How does the Webinar work?

The live audio is delivered to your location over the telephone or your computer speakers. The Power-Point presentations are presented over the Internet and are available to print out before the program. This is like a talk-radio program with visuals on the Web.

You need Real Player or Windows Media Player installed on your computer. If you do not have either, please follow the instructions below to download and install them. Or if you prefer, a phone for the audio and an Internet connection to let you watch the slides and other information on the Web will suffice. No other downloads or special hardware - a dial-up connection will work fine.

  • One (1) toll-free connection to the seminar (if you select the audio connection.), and
  • One (1) Internet connection to the seminar.

What equipment do I need?

For the audio connection:

  • Operating system: Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, XP
  • Browser: For optimal viewing experience, we recommend using Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher. However, any version of IE 4.0 or higher will work. For Netscape, only versions 4.x are supported at this time.

  • Display set at 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600
