Mr. Wilkinson will participate in a session entitled Time Shifting Consumer Lifestyles. The session, taking place Tuesday, October 4 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., will address how consumers are finally able to control content viewing and how new services and hardware are enabling full access to content anywhere, any time and any place. Wilkinson will offer insight into the importance of the user interface in delivering high-value on-demand content and services, including how it can impact usability, general acceptance of a product and ultimately its viability and success.

He was instrumental in the development of the user interface technology of ANT's PurePlay - a fully-featured digital-media manager for organizing, viewing and playing photos, audio and video content on consumer electronics products.
Wilkinson continues to play a key role in the development of IPTV solutions based on ANT's interactive technology which delivers next-generation user services and is the fundamental point of interaction between the user and the technology. Wilkinson earned a bachelor’s degree in manufacturing engineering at Brunel University in London and is the co-author of CorelDraw 12 - The Official Guide by CorelPress//McGraw-Hill/Osborne.
