Envysion announces 2011 managed and hosted video summit

LOUISVILLE, Colo., April 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The second annual Managed and Hosted Video Summit will be held June 6 - 7, 2011 at the St. Julien hotel in Boulder, CO.  The Summit is the preeminent event to accelerate segment growth and speed of adoption of Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS) and hosted video solutions.  Focused on business development, the Summit brings together managed and hosted video players, industry partners, thought leaders and investors together to share ideas, shape this emerging market and drive the success of the segment.

Last year's sold-out event demonstrated the opportunities and viability of emerging managed and hosted video solutions. This year the Summit will focus on helping providers gain momentum in the space through innovative technologies, solution partnering and differentiated value propositions.

"Based on input from last year's participants, we've shaped and focused the content for the 2011 Summit to deliver the most relevant and useful information to our attendees. We're particularly excited about the addition of the case study/demo format for the managed and hosted providers, which will provide a great opportunity to see and hear about the impact of these solutions," says Carlos Perez, vice president of product and marketing for Envysion. "Registration levels are tracking higher than this time last year, so I urge anyone considering attending the event to sign up."

The 2011 agenda covers a variety of timely topics by noteworthy industry speakers. Session topics include:

  • Keynote Speech by Jason Mendelson, Managing Director of Foundry Group
  • IMS Research – Managed and hosted video market view presented by William Rhodes, research analyst at IMS Research
  • Case Studies: Managed and hosted providers
  • Customer Perspective: How are they realizing value?
  • Solution Partnering: Exploring connections across the ecosystem
  • Managed and Hosted Channels to Market
  • Innovative Technology Perspectives – Challenges and opportunities

Mark Collett, General Manager of Sony Security Systems Division, states, "Customers are shifting how they view video surveillance from a single purpose security tool to a multi-purpose technology capable of improving productivity across the organization. We see MVaaS as a leading change agent for transforming the video surveillance market. Sony's leading network video surveillance products are a natural fit for the growing managed and hosted video industry, and  we're pleased to be the platinum sponsor of the Managed and Hosted Video Summit."
