Le groupe Lady Antebellum célèbre les fêtes de fin d'annee dans le jeu "The OregonTrail: American Settler" de Gameloft

PARIS, December 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Les fans de The Oregon Trail : American Settler vont pouvoir interagir avec le groupe aux 7 Grammy Awards qui fait une apparition dans la dernière mise à jour du jeu à l'occasion des fêtes.

Gameloft, Capitol Records et Lady Antebellum annoncent un partenariat international pour célébrer la sortie du dernier album du groupe Lady Antebellum, On This Winter's Night,  en offrant aux joueurs de nouveaux contenus pendant un temps limité dans le populaire jeu The Oregon Trail: American Settler.

La mise à jour du jeu The Oregon Trail: American Settler permet aux joueurs d'interagir avec le groupe Lady Antebellum de façon inédite. En effet, les membres du trio composé d'Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley et Dave Haywood donneront tous les trois des quêtes aux utilisateurs. Après avoir été chargé de construire une "salle de concert", le joueur pourra visionner les derniers clips du groupe réalisés pour l'album On This Winter's Night. Le joueur sera également accueilli par une vidéo de bienvenue exclusive du groupe.

Cette collaboration illustre l'importance grandissante des jeux digitaux et sociaux dans l'industrie du divertissement. Ainsi, Gameloft offre à ses partenaires une nouvelle plateforme pour communiquer avec les consommateurs en leur apportant de nouveaux contenus. Que le joueur connaisse déjà le groupe ou non, il pourra découvrir leur musique grâce à un nouveau moyen ludique et interagir avec lui.

"Gameloft est fière d'offrir à ses partenaires un moyen innovant de toucher les utilisateurs à travers ses jeux et d'offrir une expérience qui combine tous les éléments de l'univers d'une marque et les met en avant dans un contexte adapté," déclare Baudouin Corman, Vice-Président Publishing Americas. "Lady Antebellum est l'un des groupes country les plus populaires du moment et nous sommes très heureux de leur offrir un nouveau moyen de promouvoir leur album des fêtes de fin d'année, tout en offrant à nos joueurs un contenu de grande qualité en rapport avec l'univers du jeu."

"Je suis toujours à la recherche de nouvelles stratégies marketing et, grâce à Gameloft, nous disposons désormais d'un support extraordinaire pour faire découvrir le groupe Lady Antebellum et son album des fêtes "On This Winter's Night" sur un support numérique vaste et en pleine expansion,"  déclare Dawn Gates, Vice-Président Digital Marketing chez UMG Nashville.

Sorti en novembre 2011, The Oregon Trail: American Settler permet aux joueurs de s'installer dans l'Ouest américain après un long périple sur la piste de l'Oregon. À l'occasion de la sortie du nouvel album de Lady Antebellum, On This Winter's Night, Gameloft intègre pour la toute première fois un groupe musical à un de ses jeux.

Lady Antebellum a récemment sorti son premier album de Noël, On This Winter's Night, et terminé sa tournée Own The Night 2012 World Tour pour laquelle le groupe a reçu le "Breakthrough Award" de Billboard. Durant sa tournée, le groupe a parcouru les États-Unis, le Canada, l'Europe et l'Australie, et le trio gagnant de plusieurs GRAMMY Awards s'est donné en spectacle devant plus d'un million de fans de 11 pays différents sur trois continents. Lady Antebellum a joué à guichets fermés dans les plus grandes salles de concert du monde comme à Los Angeles, à Chicago, deux soirs à New York, à Toronto, à Londres, trois soirs à l'opéra de Sydney. Les trois membres du groupe ont même fait la première partie d'un concert de leur idole, Bruce Springsteen, au festival Hard Rock Calling de Londres. L'album Own The Night s'est directement placé en tête du Billboard's Top 200 à sa sortie et contient déjà deux singles numéro 1 des ventes, "We Owned The Night" et "Just A Kiss." Le trio possède déjà un palmarès impressionnant avec plus de 11 millions d'albums vendus à travers le monde, 7 GRAMMY Awards et six singles qui ont atteint la première place des ventes.

The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
