Statement From The Chairman Of Camelot Entertainment Group

---Camelot Expecting Solid Results In 2013; Flexibility Will Be Key To Future Growth---

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Camelot Entertainment Group's (OTC Pinksheets: CMGR) Chairman and CEO Robert Atwell issued the following statement on the future growth prospects in the entertainment and media industry and how it pertains to Camelot's future:

"With astonishing speed, entertainment and media have evolved into a highly dynamic industry, interconnected by the global digital platform in a manner that few people could even have ever conceived 20 years ago. Today, digital media of all types must be included when considering the scope of the entertainment and media industry.  Broadband Internet connections in U.S. homes and businesses totaled about 88 million as 2012 began, plus an additional 105 million mobile Internet subscribers.  This means there is a true mass market for online entertainment and media for Camelot to provide content to and realize revenue from in addition to the normal revenue streams currently being generated. Most recently, the "Third Screen" (cell phone-based content including video and music) is becoming a major factor in entertainment and media.  As 2012 began, there were about 323 million wireless subscriptions (for cell phones, tablets and other devices) in the U.S. and nearly 6 billion worldwide. Camelot is well positioned to take advantage of these market opportunities due in part to our ability to be flexible and to be able to react efficiently and quickly to this rapidly changing environment."

"During the last couple of years, Camelot has worked through several financial, legal and regulatory compliance obstacles. While working through and overcoming those roadblocks, our Camelot Distribution Group subsidiary remained focused on building our core distribution business. Our success from these efforts is reflected in the significant improvement in our 2011 and 2010 financial results.  During fiscal year 2011, sales increased 41% and revenues increased 67% in comparison to 2010. During fiscal year 2010, sales increased 80% and revenues increased 100% in comparison to 2009."

"As there was a delay in our reporting due to business changes and other issues, which have now been resolved, our company auditors have been designated to bring our reporting obligations current over the next 6 months in order to prepare for the upcoming opportunities and growth. We expect to file our 2010 reports during the 4th quarter, followed shortly thereafter by our 2011 and 2012 reports."

"Once our audit is up-to-date, we expect to fund and begin production on our first slate of films to be produced under the Camelot Films Production Model. We are also continuing our efforts to build new studios in Las Vegas and New Orleans.  Furthermore, we continue to explore the acquisition of feature film libraries and production/distribution companies that will complement our business model in order to secure the intellectual properties that comprise the foundation of our business."

"As we near the end of 2012, we have announced that Camelot Distribution Group will be selling our largest film to date; the $20 Million budgeted movie titled "The 34th Battalion" and will be stepping up our planned acquisitions of several more new titles with a goal of fifteen new acquisitions in 2013, with projected gross sales potentially surpassing $5,000,000 for the first time as we continue to efficiently expand our business model both domestically and internationally."

"Our management team has performed superbly, demonstrating the focus and ingenuity that define our company. In order to meet the demands of this emerging digital marketplace, our team has worked extremely hard under difficult circumstances to solidify Camelot's position in what is a very competitive environment."

"I sincerely would like to thank you for your support of Camelot and I am extremely optimistic about our future in the motion picture industry."

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...
Most of the IoT Gateway scenarios involve collecting data from machines/processing and pushing data upstream to cloud for further analytics. The gateway hardware varies from Raspberry Pi to Industrial PCs. The document states the process of allowing deploying polyglot data pipelining software with the clear notion of supporting immutability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Shashank Jain, a development architect for SAP Labs, discussed the objective, which is to automate the IoT deployment process from development to production scenarios using Docker containers.
Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry – resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time. In his general session at 17th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, an IBM Company, broke down what we have to work with, discussed the benefits and pitfalls and how we can best use them to design hosted applications.
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
