Kudelski Group to partner with Viva Technology Paris 2016

Cheseaux-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland – June 28, 2016 - The Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) is proud to support Viva Technology, a new international event dedicated to open innovation. Organized by Publicis Group and Group Les Echos, the first edition will bring together technology transformation players from around the world and connect 5,000 startups with tens of thousands of corporate executives, investors, universities and opinion leaders from around the world.

At Viva Technology, the Kudelski Group will showcase two innovation initiatives nurtured within its K-Start program, a fresh approach to the way we innovate. It aims at discovering innovative ideas generated by employees, selecting the most promising ones, and sponsoring these top ideas by giving selected innovators the means to develop their idea further.

Visitors will discover HomeScout – your home security operation center – the perfect companion for securing your connected home. HomeScout constantly scans and monitors all connected devices (phones, tablets, computers, video cameras, connected locks, etc.) within your network for potential privacy breaches or security weaknesses.

Also on display will be SPORFIE - a platform that changes the face of amateur sports practice by bringing the simplest collaborative video capture experience ever to the millions players, parents and teams. Everyone can enjoy the game while, on a single click of a button, capture the moment in a video clip of the last 15 seconds. One can then immediately replay it, share it or download it. No recording! No waiting! No editing! A concept that redefines the user experience around video; now brought by the Kudelski Group to the world of sports, concerts and beyond.

These two innovations will be showcased on Kudelski Group booth H05 located in the Hall of Tech. Viva Technology is open to professionals, businesses, startups and investors from June 30 to July 1, and to the general public on Saturday, July 2. Head to Hall 1 at Paris Expo (Porte de Versailles)!
