MUMBAI: Hungama Mobile MD and CEO Neeraj Roy is part of the grand jury for Mipcom 2007 Mobile and Internet TV Awards as chairperson.

Mipcom 2007, the world‘s audiovisual and digital content market, is showcasing the awards at its 24th edition at Palais des Festivals, Cannes.

Roy will speak on ‘Indian content on the move‘ on 8 October and will discuss this year‘s mobile and internet TV judging and the findings of the grand jury with the host. He will reveal some important facts about the mobile market, the nominated projects and internet video.

Roy said, "I am very happy to partner with Mipcom to give an international exposure to the Indian entertainment industry which has matured enough to compete globally. Quality content will continue to be a crucial driver for the development of media in India and indeed everywhere, and we look forward to delivering the very best of India at Mipcom in October."

"We see mobile medium has the potential to create a level-playing-field for film makers and other content creators, where a new visual language was in the process of being born, as demonstrated by the entries in the ‘Best short film shot on Mobile‘ category. Especially in countries where internet is not as dominant, mobile is the first screen of importance," he added.

Roy who is also director of mobile entertainment forum - Asia chapter, was awarded the ‘Sun Microsystems-Economic Times Young Leader‘ award in 2001 and voted as one of the 25 young leaders in the new millennium by Business India.
