CEA Launches Working Group to Unite Content and CE
Arlington, VA – 02/15/2012 – The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® today announced the formation of the Device, Apps and Content working group (DAC). The working group will create a forum for collaboration among device manufacturers, content creators, aggregators and app developers to increase and enhance consumer availability of content and apps on CE devices.

The convergence of content, apps and technology is driving the evolving consumer electronics industry as evidenced by the 2012 International CES, where a large number of the more than 20,000 new product introductions were designed to unite CE and content.  

“As the nation’s largest technology trade association, CEA is the hub of innovation, and our new Device, Apps and Content working group will foster new business opportunities for manufacturers and content companies,” said Jason Oxman, senior vice president, industry affairs, CEA. “Our aim is to transform content convergence so that consumers have better access to what they want directly from their electronic devices.”

Chaired by Bryan Burns, vice president of strategic business planning, ESPN, the working group will be geared toward existing and prospective CEA members with an interest in content distribution and app development.

The first DAC working group meeting will take place as a teleconference on Wednesday, February 29, 2012. For more information, or to join the DAC working group, please contact Kinsey Fabrizio at
