Trainor to deliver Intel's view of the future for portable audio, video and podcasting at tradeshow outside Los Angeles November 11-12, 2005.

Adding to the strong lineup of experts within portable media, Mike Trainor, Chief Mobile Technology Evangelist at Intel, will deliver a keynote address at the Portable Media Expo on Saturday, November 12, 2005. The new conference and expo focusing on podcasting and portable digital audio and video is expected to attract 2,000 content creators, media executives, device manufacturers, retailers, podcasters and portable media enthusiasts.

At the recent Intel Developer Forum, Intel Corporation unveiled its latest concept mobile PCs, which advance Intel's vision of anytime, anywhere computing. The new designs demonstrate how future Intel® Centrino™ mobile technology platforms could be used to provide "on-the-go" entertainment for consumers and enhanced innovation for "digital office" users.

Intel specifically addressed the subject of "entertainment wherever you go," allowing consumers in the future to enjoy digital entertainment away from, in and around the home. Intel envisions that software would allow consumers to access ("outside-in") and/or synchronize ("sync-n-go") content from a digital home PC or network to use with the concept mobile PC.

Trainor is expected to expand on this and discuss his vision of where portable devices and content are headed.

Exhibit Hall To Showcase "Tools of the Trade" for Podcast and Portable Content Creators

The exhibit hall at Portable Media Expo will showcase the latest software tools, audio and video hardware, digital players and devices, and other useful resources for independent podcasters and digital media companies. Individual podcasters are a new and rapidly-growing market for pro audio hardware and software. In an effort to produce professional-sounding talk and music shows, many podcasters are spending a significant amount of money on studio-quality microphones, mixers and editing software. Companies that have traditionally sold professional tools, mainly to recording studios and musicians, now have a new base of customers looking for solutions. While the majority of podcasters have focused on audio, podcasting video is already growing in popularity.

The growing number of portable media devices has added fuel to the fire of portable audio and video. Companies are beginning to offer downloadable content that can then be transferred to portable devices automatically with software. As more content becomes available, an increasing number of devices will find their way into the hands of consumers thirsty for niche content. Devices that are web-enabled eliminate the computer altogether, and are able to download content right to the player.

Portable Content Summit and The Podcaster Conference

Portable Media Expo will also offer two days of educational sessions in two tracks. The Portable Content Summit and The Podcaster Conference programs will feature tutorials on business models, content creation, promotion, licensing, syndication, distribution, delivery methods and digital rights management. Participating companies include Yahoo! Search, RealNetworks, Audible, Inc., Forrester Research, PayPal, EMusic.com and many others.
