Apple is Lining Up a Sneak Attack on Television, Says Brightcove
Apple is preparing a "sneak attack," a profound change to television consumption with the introduction of a "dual app" scenario.
These new apps, on the iPad or iPhone, will run the entire television experience, says Jeff Whatcott, chief marketing officer of Brightcove, the Boston-based video services company.
Whatcott made his comments during Beet.TV's video journalism summit at the Financial Times headquarters in London last month.
For how Brightcove is addressing the emerging opportunities around these dual screen apps, Beet.tv interviewed Brightcove CEO Jeremy Allaire.

A wider display promises better movie playback, while battery life, color saturation, screen resolution, and performance are all improved.
If the rumors are true, Apple is pivoting on its original plans and will now try to work closely with the cable operators.
Far from a fizzle, an Apple TV could be just what the connected TV market needs to take off. It's all about the content, says one analyst.
