Received the following along with an invitation this afternoon. I have deleted the invite part, as the event may only be open to members of the press.


Good afternoon -

The <http://www.openmobilevideo.com/>Open Mobile Video Coalition (OMVC) is a consortium of U.S. broadcasters (NBC, Fox, Gannett, Sinclair, ION, etc.) committed to making mobile digital television a reality!

Many consumers think that TV has already hit the mobile market. It hasn't, and they have no idea what they're missing. Right now users can view video on mobile devices but it's mobile DTV that is poised to shake the foundation of the mobile handheld landscape by introducing what consumers want, where they want it and when: the immediacy of live and local content, as well as national programming, at pedestrian and vehicular speeds.

Join leading broadcast execs, consumer electronics partners and software/content providers at our CES press conference and LIVE demo [January 8 at 11:00 a.m. | LVCC - South Hall 227] to check out broadcast television's latest distribution platform - mobile - in motion. - Speakers will shed light on the money-making opportunities and revenue projections for delivering live, local and national mobile content on next-generation mobile devices to consumers beginning as early as 2009. - Keeping you ahead of the latest technological developments scheduled for the next couple years, speakers will also reveal interactivity potential, advanced features (DVR, VOD, etc.) and possible model options. - Find out why industry insiders believe that mobile DTV is the new new media!
