The GameTime Media Table concept is actually a network-connected table that delivers advertisements and media across a range of of retail and hospitality environments, where its main purpose is to hook customers and draw them to open their wallets after pulling a “try before you buy” move on them. To put it plainly, the GameTime Media Table will let consumers view, listen and try different media such as games, movies and music before they make a purchase decision. To make matters more interesting and personal, the very same consumers are able to take full advantage of their smartphones in order to function as a controller when trying content, and then purchasing and downloading that content on the spot courtesy of a speedy 4G/LTE connection. Sounds like one of the quicker ways to spend frivolous amounts of money unawares before you realize it and get smacked with a really huge bill at the end of the month. Alcatel-Lucent, Brass Monkey and MediaTile are also partners who participated to make the GameTime possible.
Alcatel-Lucent also founded the ng Connect Program in 2009, where it will bring together infrastructure, device, application and content companies in order to create an end-to-end ecosystem with all the resources and expertise at one’s disposal in order to deliver next generation services and applications to service providers in the most rapid manner possible.
