ZexSports President Espree Devora Joins Panel Discussion on 'The Future of Online Content'

Jun 16, 2008, 01:00 ET from ZexSports

    LOS ANGELES, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- ZexSports President and Founder,
 Espree Devora will be a featured participant on a panel of emerging media
 specialists invited to discuss the future of online video content. Taking
 place at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 16th at Blankspaces of Los Angeles, the
 event is sponsored by Asahi beer.
 
     Hosted by Managing Consultant, Michael Liskin, the panel will be
 addressing a fifty-member audience on the subject of digital entertainment.
 This event will immediately follow the premier of TruTV's Tiger Team, a
 reality show covering the lives of experts in computer espionage. As
 co-creator of Tiger Team, Liskin says the show's focus on technology was
 the impetus behind the Q & A panel discussion.
 
     "Hollywood is changing," says Liskin. "Television networks are testing
 various web models, as today's media leans toward more profitable, online
 content. The questions remain, 'How will this business model function, what
 role does creativity play and in what form will it be delivered?'"
 
     In an effort to address these questions, Liskin gathered leading
 experts who are currently producing compelling content on the Internet.
 Among them are Espree Devora, owner of the action sports network,
 ZexSports.com and seasoned Hollywood veteran Ken LaZebnik from Strike.tv.
 Joining them on stage will be Amanda Congdon, host of Sometimesdaily, Gilad
 Lotan of Endemol USA, and Hayden Black of Goodnight. Also participating
 will be Michael Pilla of Indieflix, Tim Street of frenchmaidtv and Doug and
 Rosanne Welch who will be speaking on the subject of podcasting.
 
     According to Liskin, the objective of the event is to trigger a lively
 discussion about the future of technology from contemporary entrepreneurs
 who have successfully mastered the utilization of web content. Panelists
 will be challenged to consider ways to connect members of the public to
 fantastic web content and the opportunities that currently exist for
 content providers.
 
     Providing insight on these topics is Espree Devora of ZexSports who
 comments, "IP based distributors understand that the greatest part of
 content delivery is to address underserved entertainment segments. For
 ZexSports, this audience is the action sports industry. We are committed to
 producing branded content to satisfy this lucrative, expanding
 entertainment segment in a way that reaches beyond traditional distribution
 methods."
 
     The event will be interactive and streaming live in an effort to
 incorporate members of the podcast audience. Additionally, the event's
 location, Blankspaces, was strategically selected to complement the
 discussion topic. Located in the Miracle Mile District, Blankspaces is LA's
 newest co-working office space community, designed to inspire and encourage
 a free-flow exchange of ideas and creativity.
 
     "The online market is going way beyond YouTube," says Liskin. "It is
 becoming increasingly sponsor-driven in contrast to the advertising model
 traditionally associated with television. As the models shift, this is an
 exciting time to be involved in the development of online content."
