Access4Artists CEO to Speak at MediaBistro Social Curation Summit

Dec 06, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Access4Artists (a4a) founder and CEO, Kiate Moy, announced it will speak at the MediaBistro Social Curation Summit, in Los Angeles as a panelist.

Other panel members will include Jack Krawczyk, head of monetization at StumbleUpon; Nola Weinstein, executive editorial director at Glam.com; and Jamie Berger, CEO at Uncovet.

As part of the "Artists on the Verge: The Democratization of Artistic Achievement through Social Media" panel, Moy will provide insight on how talent from musicians to models and filmmakers use social media to elevate their careers, as well as the importance of an active social presence and networking for creative communities.

According to a release, Access4Artists.com is an online global talent platform for actors, comedians, dancers, filmmakers, models, musicians and poets. The community helps artists garner industry attention and advance their careers through fan-driven activity and monthly contests.

"Social media is crucial to increasing artist visibility and recognition among the movers and shakers in the industry," said Moy. "Many Access4Artists experience significant growth in their fan bases and requests for appearances as a result of their presence on Access4Artists.com. We also attribute this to Access4Artists' vast social media presence." Access4Artists maintains active presences on a number of social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, Pinterest and YouTube, as well as hosting a blog on its website. The a4a team also commits significant resources to engaging fans and followers on these social platforms.

On Access4Artists.com, the Company said artists create a free profile and build a fan base by posting and sharing their work in the form of photos, audio and video. Each month, fans vote for their favorite artists in a series of specialized contests. Each vote increases the possibility of attracting notice for performers by high-profile entertainment industry executives, helping artists win career-advancing prizes. Contests winners receive meaningful prizes ranging from free studio time to professional counsel from a Los Angeles publicist.

Moy was raised in the Detroit area, and as the nephew of Motown legend, Sylvia Moy has roots in the music industry. Prior to Access4Artists, he managed talent on his own time, providing him experience and insight into the world of up-and-coming, independent artists.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.
