CONNECTIONS: The Digital Home Conference
and Showcase announces dates for 2006

Dallas, TX July 19, 2005 — Parks Associates announced today the 2006 CONNECTIONS : The Digital Home Conference and Showcase will be held May 2-4 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Produced by Parks Associates in partnership with CEA, CONNECTIONS is the leading conference for the discussion and analysis of current and future technologies and services for the digital home. The event’s speakers and attendees are among the business leaders in this market segment.

Parks Associates forecasts that 69% of U.S. broadband households will have a residential gateway (RG) by 2009, driven in large part by service providers. In the next five years, cable, DSL, and other broadband vendors will deploy voice-over-IP (VoIP) and multimedia services aggressively, which will boost the market for RGs.

“As service providers deploy home networking solutions directly to the consumer, the number of available entertainment applications will increase exponentially,” said Tricia Parks, president of Parks Associates. “CONNECTIONS provides a congenial setting for thought and market leaders to discuss and debate key factors currently driving and inhibiting the consumer markets for digital content and products.”

In May 2005, CONNECTIONS hosted over 730 executives and more than 100 corporate, media, and supporting sponsors. Every year, CONNECTIONS focuses on the current status and future opportunities in the following industry areas:
• digital entertainment;
• residential gateways;
• home networks;
• broadband-related infrastructure and services; and
• home management.
CONNECTIONS is also hosting six interactive sessions at 2006 International CES, which will take place January 5-8, 2006, in Las Vegas, Nev. Each session, moderated by Parks Associates’ expert analysts and featuring a panel of industry executives, will discuss and evaluate the evolution of consumer music experiences, portable entertainment devices, digital distribution of media, and the management of home networks.

CONNECTIONS: The Digital Home Conference and Showcase, produced by Parks Associates in partnership with the Consumer Electronics Association, is the largest international executive conference for digital home technologies. CONNECTIONS provides a comprehensive review of all aspects of the digital home value chain. Industry and consumer perspectives are provided through presentation of Parks Associates and CEA research, keynote speakers, panel speakers, media and organization support, and a show floor displaying the latest technologies.
