Accedo opens iPad and Tablet TV Innovation Studio
Stockholm August 23 2010 – Accedo Broadband today announced that the company is opening a unit
dedicated to innovation around the usage of iPads and other tablet devices in a TV context.
“TV usage as we know it will evolve rapidly over the coming 10 years,” commented Michael Lantz, CEO,
Accedo Broadband. “We believe that some consumers will use their iPad or any other tablet device to interface
with TV content and applications, either in the living room, when moving around the house, or elsewhere.”
The new Tablet Innovation Studio will be placed at Accedo’s main R&D office in Stockholm, Sweden and will work
with a range of new innovative applications together with partners and customers.
“We’re excited about the opportunities presented by tablet devices,” continued Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo
Broadband. “We expect these devices to have a significant impact on consumer TV consumption behaviour, due to
their nature as both a media consumption platform, as well as an attractive interaction interface, capable of
connecting to TV devices.”
Accedo Broadband will be showcasing iPad apps in its booth #703-704 at IBC in Amsterdam, September 9-14.
