ATLANTA (September 30, 2016) – The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), one of the nation’s largest state trade organizations dedicated to technology and innovation, recently recognized Paul Hamm, Endavo CEO, as a Digital Media & Entertainment Technology “Game Changer” in the latest issue of Hub Magazine.
The Peach State dominates in the Media and Entertainment tech industry. TV networks, film studios, digital gaming and more created $6 billion in economic impact in Georgia in 2015 and the state is the 3rd most profitable in the nation when it comes to entertainment, behind California and New York, respectively. The Media and Entertainment issue of Hub Magazine focuses on the tech side of this vibrant industry in Georgia.
The DM&E Technology Game Changers are selected by TAG and include 2016 innovators who are changing the game in Broadcast, Digital Gaming and Film Technology in Georgia. In addition to Paul, other broadcast Game Changers for 2016 are Ben Lawrence, VP IT Operations for Bounce TV, and Bob Hesskamp, SVP Global Broadcast Technology for Turner.
Through Paul’s vision and leadership, the Endavo OTT platform represents a cost-effective solution and fast path for content creators, broadcasters and even pay TV providers to take their premium content “over the top”. HUB Magazine cites Endavo’s launch of Footprint.tv in New York and Atlanta to be a game changing initiative. Footprint.tv is a new multichannel network (MCN) that empowers local independent content creators to find OTT distribution and monetization.
In addition to the Game Changers list, the July/August 2016 issue of Hub features Cameron Clayton, CEO of The Weather Company, an IBM business, and also showcases Georgia’s exciting digital news industry, including NewsOn, Social News Desk, Newsreps, and UrbanGeekz.

We are celebrating National Streaming Day, along with our pals at Roku!
In celebration, Roku released findings from a recent online survey on the streaming habits of American consumers. According to the survey results, consumer behavior is changing in order to accommodate streaming “FOMO,” or “fear of missing out.” In some cases, streaming entertainment held higher value than some established personal daily habits or social interactions.
The survey, by MACRO, Inc. was conducted from April 27 to May 1 on behalf of Roku. The survey was conducted online among a cross section of 2824 adults ages 18 and older in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Mexico. The survey participants were Roku and other device users who streamed content in the past 30 days. The survey found:
Streaming FOMO prevalent amongst young adults
Adults between the ages of 18-34 are most likely to experience streaming FOMO.
- In the U.S., 28% of adults between the ages of 18-34 admitted to fibbing about watching a movie, TV show or sporting event in order to feel included as part of a group or conversation
- 59% of adults between the ages of 18-34 have said they were doing another activity when they were actually streaming
- 40% of adults between the ages of 18-34 also admitted to canceling or not showing up for other plans in order to stream content
Streaming FOMO vs. Daily Habits
Streaming FOMO also has an affect on daily habits, with many willing to sacrifice parts of their daily routine for a week rather than give up streaming television shows and/or movies on their TVs.
- 50% of Americans would give up caffeine in order to stream
- 21% of Americans place more value on streaming to their television than brushing their teeth
Here’s the Roku press release
So come on America, celebrate National Streaming Day with us…. GET DOWN WITH OTT & GO STREAM!
