On Friday, February 22, USC’s Business and Entertainment Association (BEA) is hosting its 4th annual E2: Evolution of Entertainment Conference at the Town & Gown Hall at the USC Campus. The event is designed for professionals and students alike who are interested in or are currently working in the field of entertainment or new media. It’s focus is on the evolving changes in technology that have had an influential impact on the business of entertainment.

TechZulu had the pleasure again this year to help bring all the New Media Expo (NMX) 2013 Keynotes sessions live. If you missed out on the keynotes live we have all of them for you on demand.

The final episode of Bravo’s Start-ups: Silicon Valley aired recently, wrapping up an 8-episode run of what could be considered the most bizarre depiction of entrepreneurs and start-ups to date. I would not be exaggerating if I told you that it left my head spinning and my mouth agape for at least an hour. What was that? No really, what just happened there?

We here at TechZulu would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and safe and happy holidays. The holidays are a wonderful time to slow down and truly enjoy the real treasures of our lives – our loved ones. Remember to keep them close and appreciate how rich our lives are because of them.
Enjoy the holidays this season and surround yourself with those you love most. We wish you the happiest of holidays!

TVSync’s parent company Voible, has provided fingerprint protection technology to most major movie studios and TV networks since 2005. Their VDNA technology helps protect and manage content rights for works that may be pirated and uploaded illegally by automatically identifying that content, tracking it and taking it down. Utilizing this same core technology, TVSync has developed automatic content recognition (ACR) software that can be accessed in seconds by video and/or audio using the camera and/or mic from a mobile device.

Being an entrepreneur is scary. Every day we have to make decisions we don’t know are right or wrong and most times we just do our best to trust our gut. Then people like Kevin Winston storm into a city like Superman to save the day and make all our lives just a little bit easier. That’s what Kevin’s conference, Silicon Beach Fest (SBF), did for Los Angeles entrepreneurs.
