Tap our event info into your smartphone and we’ll see you on Tuesday January 31 at ING DIRECT Cafe in Westwood (West LA). This is our first event of the new year– we hope you’ll make it out here! Not sure who’s speaking? Lucky for you, we’ve got some info for you here. Read on and learn more about Tim Street, V.P. Mobile Apps for mDialog and one of our panelists for this month’s event.
The mDialog platform is a real-time, Video as a Service (VaaS) solution that provides video publishers and advertisers a suite of in-stream ad services for mobile devices. The mDialog Dynamic Ad-insertion service lets advertisers increase the relevancy of their brand messaging with real-time, mobile-specific ad-targeting through geo-location, audience interactivity and device level ad frequency capping.
By day, Tim is a VP at mDialog. By night, he’s co-hosting This Week in Media. Somewhere in the middle, Tim’s also creating, directing and producing viral videos, speaking at conferences and tweeting. His online videos have totaled more than 40M downloads – that’s not an easy feat. Tim’s speaking credits include Blog World, ComicCon, Digital Hollywood, Inbound Marketing Summit, LATV Fest, NATPE, NAB, New Media Expo, Mac World, Podcast Academy, SXSW, Vloggercon and other local and national events. Tim has produced short and long form TV for Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros., ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, The WB, UPN, Fine Living, Food Network, Game Show Network, Nickelodeon, Spike TV and many others. In 2009, Tim was inducted into the International Academy of Web Television and currently sits on the board of directors. Tim blogs at 1TimStreet.com and consults with agencies, brands, marketers, media buyers, companies, producers and individuals who wish to reach an audience on the Internet and mobile connected devices.
That said, what questions are you interested in asking Tim? You can ask him directly at our mobile tools and users panel on January 31 or email us at socialmediaclubLA*at*gmail*dot*com or tweet us at @SMC_LA. RSVP for the event here: mobilesmcla.eventbrite.com/
Here are a few questions I’ll be sending along to our moderator:
- While the thought of having a livestream in my pants (or my smartphone) sounds good, have content producers and telecom companies come to an understanding on the amount of bandwidth needed for streaming into millions of “handsets”? Where does this leave consumers with less than average space on their phones or tablets?
- Does Tim have some numbers on the rate of commercial consumption on mobile tv versus traditional tv?
- Can users skip the commercials on their mobile device or are they locked in?
- What sort of tv commercials have worked well with mDialog’s platform?
If you’ve got more questions to ask Tim, bring them along with you on Tuesday, January 31! I’ll see you there.
