For SXSW 2012, we’d like to turn the spotlight onto two important topics on the future of cloud music services, and the exciting trend towards Cloud Movies. Please check them out and vote for both panels!

Panel #1: SXSW Music: "The More Music Services Change…”

Join us for what is shaping up to be a heated debate on the future outlook for cloud music services. Is the industry making progress to win over the market, or are we still moving in the wrong direction? We’ll take a nitty-gritty look at models, subscriber numbers, star charts, etc., to determine whether we’ve sweetened the deal enough to lure 98% of the market that’s still stealing music.

VentureBeat’s Jolie O’Dell will moderate a team of panelists including Daren Tsui, CEO for mSpot; Michelle Engle, AT&T Radio; Wendy Nussbaum, Universal Music Group; Mike McGuire, Analyst for Gartner.

Panel #2: SXSW Film: "Now There's Music Cloud, Where's Movie Cloud?"

We are all excited to have our music in the cloud services – now, what about movies? What’s going to move things forward, beyond the download?

Scott Ellison, Analyst for IDC, will moderator this diverse group of industry panelists, including Jason Spivak, Senior Vice President, Digital Distribution at Sony Pictures; Carolyn Giardina of Hollywood Reporter; George Sebastian ‐ Disney ABC Domestic Television; and Daren Tsui, CEO of mSpot.
