The Digital Development Group Goes Live

The Digital Development Group Corp. (OTCBB:DIDG) (“DigiDev” or the “Company”), an Internet TV distribution company, announces the launch of commercial operations with its first channel.

DigiDev is targeting the rapidly expanding and revolutionary “OTT” technology arena. “OTT” or Over The Top devices piggyback on existing network services in consumers’ homes or offices, pull content from the Internet and deliver it to their TV or Internet enabled device. DigiDev will use OTT technology to deliver movies, games & apps to billions of desktops, mobile and smart/Internet enabled TV devices around the World.

“After many months of fine tuning our platform we are proud to announce the launch of our first channel,” stated Martin W. Greenwald, CEO. “This is a significant milestone for the Company, transitioning from a development stage to the realization of our business model: generation of revenue. We are confident we’ve launched at the perfect time on the heels of the enormous growth at Netflix (a streaming provider), as well as Amazon’s commitment to increase their new content investment to fuel demand on their streaming platform. We believe that 2013 will be a 'tipping-point' for the industry,” continued Greenwald.

“2013 will see the OTT space explode, and for us the rollout of our first commercial channel is just the beginning. In addition to this launch, DigiDev has licensed content libraries with over a dozen more unique suppliers. Content will drive this market, as it has every technology before it. Our goal is to aggregate scores of programming to satisfy consumer appetite. Brands such as Apple Tv, Google Tv, Roku and others have become 'must have' gifts for this Holiday Season. Samsung, LG and others have rolled out internet enabled 'Smart' TVs and indications are that consumers have flocked to them.”

“I have been in the content distribution business since the '70s and have never seen a technology with greater potential. To capture the predicted global demand for niche and mainstream content, DigiDev has secured worldwide distribution rights in many of its agreements.”

“The timing of this opportunity is interesting as we are benefiting from widespread high speed internet access along with a consumer desire to have an on-demand and a-la-carte viewing experience. The 'Cable-Cutters' have been migrating towards OTT and that trend is accelerating,” concludes Mr. Greenwald.

The current OTT universe is 300 million users and will experience 100% growth annually for the next 5 years to a market of 4.8 billion devices.

Joe Q. Bretz, President and leader of the technology group stated, “I am proud of what our team has done in a short period of time, but it is merely a taste of things to come. Please visit www.digidev.tv at your convenience and explore our first offering in what promises to be a large compilation of independent content ranging from classic horror films to Oscar Winning Documentaries.”

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
