Arlington, Va. -
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has
formed a new working group to encourage collaboration among device makers,
content creators and app developers.

The CEA's Device,
Apps and Content working group (DAC) is intended to provide a forum to enhance
consumer availability of content and apps on CE devices.

"As the nation's
largest technology trade association, CEA is the hub of innovation, and our new
Device, Apps and Content working group will foster new business opportunities
for manufacturers and content companies," said Jason Oxman, CEA industry
affairs senior VP. "Our aim is to transform content convergence so that
consumers have better access to what they want directly from their electronic
devices."

Chaired by Bryan
Burns, ESPN strategic business planning VP, the working group will be geared
toward existing and prospective CEA members with an interest in content
distribution and app development.

The first DAC
working group meeting will take place as a teleconference on Feb. 29.
