"Siri voice recognition is a popular feature, and nearly 40% of iPhone 4S owners now want similar voice features for their TVs," said Kurt Scherf, VP, Principal Analyst, Parks Associates. "Gesture and voice-control offerings create new, immersive entertainment experiences and could boost adoption of other enhancements, such as 3DTV, currently in only 6% of North American broadband households. With these technologies, providers can offer unique interfaces between viewer and content, which should lead to higher customer satisfaction and levels of engagement with programming and advertising."

-- Scott Burnett, Director, Global Consumer Electronics Industry, IBM-- Ben Huang, Director, Worldwide Marketing, Interactive Entertainment Business, Microsoft-- Chad Lucien, SVP, Sales & Marketing, Hillcrest Labs-- Aaron Sheedy, VP, Mobile Products, Nuance Mobile-- Ohad Shvueli, VP, Sales and Marketing N.A., PrimeSense
