The leading event in connected home, Digital Home World Summit, returns for its 5th year to a brand new location, Mövenpick Hotel, Berlin. The event will provide a unique learning and networking experience for forward thinking operators looking to stay ahead of competition and develop new revenue streams in connected home. Connected TV services, such as Second Screen, Big Data and Ultra HD remain the biggest drivers for growth this 2014 with Frost & Sullivan reporting exponential growth in video consumption across non-traditional devices such as tablets, smart phones, PCs and connected TVs. It’s expected that 70% of data traffic on mobile devices will be video by 2016. This year’s event will assess the latest crucial developments, investments and strategies required to continually engage the ever-demanding, young consumer. Along with this, Digital Home will focus on the opportunities in value added services in connected home, such as energy management and smart metering; connected healthcare and remote security management. Highlights from this year’s programme include a QiViCon case study on connecting to all standards from Thomas Kiessling, Chief Product and Innovation Office, Deutsche Telekom, winning marketing strategies for value added services from Erik Busse, Program Manager ‘Internet of Things’, Belgacom and expert advice in making homes future proof for the elderly from Renaud di Francesco, Director, Europe Technology Standards Office, Sony Europe. www.digitalhomeworldsummit.com
