Consumer use of mobile devices for entertainment and information is exploding. Smart phones and tablets are used for both primary programming and "second screen" applications. These devices are increasingly being integrated into the "connected car," where legacy receivers are no longer the only built-in listening option. Applying the term "streaming" to a broad range of delivery platforms, this panel will look at the established and nascent technical advancements that have enabled content providers to reach the expanding mobile audience. We'll also explore whether audio and data technologies are changing consumer preferences or merely keeping up with them. Panelists will also pull out their crystal balls to predict the future technologies that will help help some of the platforms grow their listener base and turn other platforms dark.
