Session 3: Converged Content - Is there such a thing? 
While we are talking about convergence in the networks and devices, there is little open discussion about the Convergence in the content itself. With an increasing number of digital outlets (cell phones, game consoles, mobile consoles, iPods and other mobile devices), the generation of the content, whether it be a movie, TV show, news items, song or a video game, itself is becoming increasingly complex and expensive since it needs to be rendered on many different devices. The content generation should also be such that creativity and consistency in content is maintained. What are the challenges and opportunities that the Media and Entertainment Industry faces today in this arena and how are they addressing the various issues?

Session 4: Business Models on the Mobile Internet - Advertisement, Paid Content, Community (Web 2.0) or Other? 
While on the wired internet, ad-based models by companies such as Google, Yahoo and Microsoft have established a trend. Web 2.0 companies such as Facebook, Youtube, Myspace and Linked-in have lead the development of Web 2.0 models on the internet with exponentially increasing number of eyeballs as a result of community. The mobile internet on the other hand has yet to see the uptake of advertisements on such large a scale, has set to see the Web 2.0 communities creating large numbers of eyeballs or seen large revenues via paid content. The panel experts will present their own viewpoints on where they see - today and in the future - the potential models for revenues on the Mobile Internet.

Session 5: Big Media and Big Network - Issues in working together - DRM, Distribution, Technology, Consumer 
Big Media has traditionally kept a tight control of its content. Network providers are interested in rapid movement of content in their networks so they can be viewed/rendered on personal/mobile devices. There has been tremendous growth of network carrying capacity and so network providers have a greater thirst for more content. Big Media wants to provide content, but also wants to monetize it. Digital rights management has become a central and contentious issue between the network providers, content providers and consumer - with models of DRM ranging from free access with ad-based revenues to subscription to pay-per-use. The panel will discuss their own experiences in Big Media working with Big Network - and how the consumer can eventually benefit via advanced technologies.
