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

First "iTVcon - Internet TV Conference & Expo" to Take Place in New York

SYS-CON Events announced today that the first "iTVcon Internet TV Conference & Expo 2007" (www.itvcon.com) will take place June 25-26, 2007 in New York City. Calls for papers for the conference, sponsorship and exhibit opportunities were made available today at the conference website. Delegate registration information can also be obtained at the conference website, www.itvcon.com.

A letter written by the conference chair Jeremy Geelan announcing the conference today states:

"Welcome to the Future! Did you already purchase your .tv domain name? You can't afford not to add Internet TV to your Web site in 2007!"

2006 has been the year of streaming video and the birth of Internet TV, the long-awaited 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 must now provide video content to remain competitive, not to mention live and interactive video webinars and on-demand webcasts.

Internet TV is wide open, it is global, and in true "Web 2.0" spirit it is a direct-to-consumer opportunity.

Twenty 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.

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. You need to be part of this change!

On that note we welcome you to the first iTVcon - Internet TV Conference & Expo 2007.

Welcome to the future!
