LAS VEGAS, Consumer Electronics Show 2013, Jan. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rovi Corporation (Nasdaq:ROVI), driving digital entertainment innovation, today introduced the Rovi Insights Series, an ongoing report series that provide timely and topical information on the state of digital entertainment and its future. Drawing upon industry trends, the company's primary research and direct measurement capabilities, Rovi Insights Series unveils perspectives on the market ecosystem from Rovi's vantage point – a technology and solutions provider in the center of the ecosystem, driving forward the discovery, delivery, display and monetization of entertainment across platforms and devices. The first edition, released at CES, features articles that lay out a vision for the natural evolution of TV Everywhere to Entertainment Unbound.
Digital entertainment has gained ground over the past few years. As a result, entertainment services have extended their offering to incorporate access to content on other consumer electronic devices beside the home television. Today's implementation of content anytime and anywhere is a limited transaction between device, platform and medium. Rovi's vision of Entertainment Unbound aims to connect people and entertainment in a more personal, relevant and engaging manner, taking into account situational context, device capabilities, content optimization and fostering interactivity with consumers. To help the industry visualize Entertainment Unbound, Rovi will demonstrate the concept at its private exhibit at CES.
"Entertainment Unbound gives the user, not the device, control of the entertainment experience," said Ray DeRenzo, SVP of Marketing for Rovi Corporation. "This is a fundamental shift in how we view digital entertainment, and we believe that the industry will embrace this change. Rovi envisions a truly dynamic market without boundaries, and the first edition of the Rovi Insights Series highlights the business intelligence that makes this the necessary step forward for the industry."
In addition to introducing Entertainment Unbound, key topic areas covered in the first edition of the report series include: user engagement, device-driven discovery preferences, user demographics, Millennials, monetization and ad receptivity. The Rovi Insights Series is available as a downloadable interactive application and in print edition. For more information, visit www.rovicorp.com/insights.
