2nd Screen Society:
The 2nd Screen Society (S3) was formed to meet the needs of the rapidly evolving ecosystem for companion screen viewing of broadcast television and home entertainment. Through their events (held in NY and Los Angeles as well as at major trade shows throughout the world), committees and meetings, S3 represents and facilitates dialogue among an emerging industry of established corporations and start-ups that are defining the new second screen experience. The Society’s mission is to advance the creation, production and adoption of content, applications , devices and distribution systems within the 2nd Screen Engagement Ecosystem.
