Neustar, Inc. a leading enabler of global communications and media technology, will be at NAB 2011 to highlight its role in driving new technologies and services that dramatically enhance the way consumers purchase, access, manage and enjoy digital content. Neustar Media Vice President and General Manager Tim Dodd will discuss the future of digital content delivery in two separate sessions: on UltraViolet™, the “digital rights locker” that allows people to consolidate their video collections in a central, secure place; and on Mobile DTV, extending broadcast quality television to mobile devices and the steps the industry is taking to socialize and encourage adoption.

Neustar is a founding member of the DECE (the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem) consortium of more than 60 companies from the entertainment, retail, consumer electronics, technology and communications industries who are working together in the development and launch of UltraViolet, a digital distribution ecosystem to enable a publish once, buy once and play anywhere solution. Neustar is the company building the underlying UltraViolet architecture to enable consumers to connect and manage their content and devices, and to interact with their digital media in a rewarding and innovative way.

Neustar is also working in close collaboration with OMVC (Open Mobile Video Coalition), the consortium of broadcasters developing a mobile DTV (digital television) platform that will enable local TV stations to deliver live, digital content to mobile phones, portable media players, laptop computers, personal navigation devices and automobile-based "infotainment systems."

Tim is a panelist for the UltraViolet Super Session, “UltraViolet: Your Content, Any Device” on Monday (April 11), 4:00 p.m.-5:15 p.m., at The Las Vegas Convention Center; the panel will examine the project’s specific goals, current progress and projected implementation date. Tim will also participate in the NAB Media Business Conference, “Going Mobile: Entertainment Marketing, Promotion & Distribution via Mobile” panel, on Wednesday (April 13), 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., exploring the growth of entertainment and video content on mobile devices and the future of mobile DTV.

Before joining Neustar in 2010 as Vice President and General Manager of Neustar Media, Tim was Corporate Vice President of Corporate Business Development and Strategy at Warner Bros., where he was responsible for formulating and executing strategy for Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., and for each of its major business units. Previously, he was Group Vice President of Technology Policy for Time Warner Cable from 2003 – 2008, where he was responsible for content programming deals, technology policy and content distribution strategy.
