Its been a couple weeks, but we wanted to let you know about whats happening at TPN.TV.
We had another team meeting last week to try and get stuff nailed down. While productive, we still have a lot of work to do and only a month to do it. From which streaming company to use to how we are setting up the booth this year — lots to discuss…
It’s time to start sending out T-shirts to those who have already donated. In the next 2 weeks I’ll be getting out emails so you can get your shirt.
Only ONE available. With this backer level, you will be a daily sponsor of the live stream. Your 60 second call to action script will run 6 times during that day.
This is a great level for a SMB who plans starting a podcast, because you will get time from Podcast coach Jeffrey Powers to set up and get your podcast running. (Must supply travel and hotel if more than 50 miles away from Madison, WI).
This is the second update to the TPN.TV crowdfund initiative for TPN @CES. This week, Jamie Davis of Health Tech Weekly talks about the health pavilion at CES. Jamie first joined us as a camera person at CES 2012. We found multiple health related products and the introduction of their health row that year. Since then, Jamie, Chris and Anne head up the healthcare side of TPN.TVs coverage.
It’s week 2 of our TPN.tv crowdfund!
I’m Jamie Davis, the host of the Health Tech Weekly podcast and I want to thank you all for helping our efforts to bring CES to you. The funding effort is moving along and we are all excited about the response. If you’re following this campaign and wondering what our videos do, I thought you might want an example of how our programs help people buy gifts, save their money, and even stay healthier.
My show Health Tech Weekly at HTWeekly.com is all about new and upcoming technology that helps people stay and get healthy, either through new, innovative medical devices or fitness tools and apps. CES has a growing digital health pavilion that brings the latest in medical and health technology to the CES attendees.
I’m really excited to get there and bring you my reports from the booths in the South Hall at CES 2014.
As a nurse and a journalist, I was encouraged by all of the health tech items at CES 2013. Last year I saw a bunch of wearable fitness products and mobile apps that help remind people to stay fit and healthy as well as track their progress towards fitness goals. There were also several “brain training” programs for the elderly to help improve memory and slow mental decline in progressive dementia patients.
This year (CES 2014) I expect the wearable fitness boom to continue with new products coming out from existing platforms like Fitbit as well as new sensor technology to allow these devices to detect even more about our health and well being while we’re on the go. There are also going to be more technology options looking at helping our growing elderly population keep healthy as well as get better after an injury or medical episode. I’ll be bringing that coverage to all of you right from the show floor in special video segments I shoot this coming year at CES.
All of our video interviews and product reviews from the TPN.tv team give folks the chance to see some of the top, most innovative consumer electronics products before they ever hit the store shelves (or the links online). This advance information gives people the chance to make some intelligent choices about the electronic devices they are buying or thinking of buying. Should you buy now or wait for the next, upcoming innovation in a product line? That’s why I do what I do — to inform people about what’s out there, especially in the health care space.
Who else is an important part of that equation? You! With your support as a financial backer, you help us get an important job done. I love what I do and I want to thank you for your support!If you’re on the fence and can’t decide whether to support us yet, I urge you to keep coming back and checking in with our updates here at this page.
While you’re at it, share this campaign with folks you know via social media, on Facebook, Twitter or Google+. Use the hash tags #crowdfund and #CES when you do and help us out just by spreading the word.If you’ve already contributed, thanks. I look forward to thanking all of our contributors directly before, during and after CES, so stay tuned!
Here’s another video segment, showing one of my past interviews from CES to give you an example of the work I’ve done in the past, helping folks stay healthier with mobile fitness technology. Enjoy!
The Techpodcasts crew has come out to cover the Consumer Electronics Show since 2007. In 2011, we chose to add a new level of coverage by putting together a livestream booth. For the last 3 years you could watch the show as it unfolded right through TPN.TV.
2014 will be no different. This year we will add a new element – YOU!
TPN.TV Crowdfund through FundAnything.com
We chose FundAnything as our Crowdfund platform for CES action. We are looking to cover at least $5,000 of the show. This will account for plane tickets, hotel rooms and other needs (taxi, car rental, shipping, etc).
With as little as $10, you can support our efforts at CES. For $25, we will send you a nice T-shirt that says “I’m a Backer TPN@CES 2014”. These shirts are made through CafePress.
Other cool backer gifts will be coupons for 80% off a canvas photo print at Cafe Press, a PLAY 25X TV mount from Omnimount.com, podcast coach time from Jeffrey Powers and Howtorecordpodcasts.com and much more!
Help Us Meet Our Goal!
The more you help means the more we can do for this year’s coverage. We want to be your primary source for CES 2014 with our best Independent coverage. So please check out the levels and back us at what you can spare.
Nicholas DiMeo and Scott Ertz, of F5 Live: Refreshing Technology are excited and ready for our fourth year of covering the International CES 2013 in Las Vegas, NV. For us, the holidays aren’t over until we’ve covered every inch of the now 1.8 million square feet of show space that is CES 2013. Our show is now fully integrated into the Tech Podcast Network coverage and we can’t wait to show all of you the coolest, most innovative and downright nerdy gadgets and toys that we’re able to find. From professional audio equipment to the next leap in processing power, CES has it all and we are interested in finding the products that will end up as holiday gifts by this time next year.
With the TPN booth being moved to just outside the North Hall, things are bound to get a little hectic and crazy so be sure to follow the news, as it happens, on your phone, computer or tablet as we bring it to you as live as it can be. We’ll be live streaming (quite literally), live blogging, live tweeting and doing pretty much everything we can do be the only source you need to log onto during the most important week of the technology world. From big time CEOs to the startups at Eureka Park, we’ll have 45 hours of content for you to enjoy from the moment the show floor opens, right here on this site. Then, once the show comes to a close, we will be providing you with more in-depth interviews from the show floor, as our team scoured the floor extensively to make sure we didn’t miss a thing. Oh, and don’t forget to keep the site up so you can catch all of the antics that happen during the afterparties and events that take place during the night. Those videos will also be right here for you to enjoy, as informative or as crazy as they might be!
It’s all going down on January 8-11, live from beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada so mark your calendars. We’re ready; are you?
You might call it a Triple Threat – Andy McCaskey of SDRNews, joined by new co-host Courtney Wallin and Andy Smith. If you watch the TPN show Geocaching World, you know Andy by his geocaching handle, “HeadHardHat”. We are all excited to join TPN for CES2012 coverage.
