    Hi I am the founder of Mango DVM (a company funded by Chennai Angels) with extensive insights (and 5 years of on the ground experience) in to distributing digital content through offline channels, in the piracy infested Indian market.

    I have written an article "The Holy grail of Content on Demand" in Voice and Data magazine" a few years ago.

    I can talk about some innovative and unconventional ideas of using technology to distribute digital content in the Indian mass market for those who cannot afford high speed bandwidth for streaming or high cost LCD TVs for viewing. (The 500 million mobile consumers in the middle and bottom of the pyramid)

    Hi Javeeth

    I thought I can add my views to the session on Independent Films Distribution. If you think I should propose a separate session I will do so.

    Hi Javeeth

    I have posted a separate session. I have also registered for the event but could not figure out how to pay the event fee. Received an email from Gautham acknowledging the registration and asking for a couple of days to confirm the same.
