MIPTV’s “Super Sunday” program, slated for April 1, will put its focus squarely on connected devices and, in turn, connected audiences.

The media content conference will present three Media Mastermind keynote sessions from executives operating in the digital realm, including Discovery Communications’ chief digital officer JB Perrette, Amazon.com’s vice president Anthony Bay, and Rovio chief marketing officer Peter Vesterbacka.

Other digital-oriented sessions on the opening Sunday of MIPTV will include a global market overview on connected devices and connected audiences from ISH Screen Digest senior analyst, Tom Morrod, and 20-minute interview sessions with assorted execs in the space, including YouTube EMEA’s Jed Simmons, Facebook UK’s Karla Geci, and MySpace U.S.’ Marcus Liassides.

The day will also feature the MIPCube Supersession, which will spotlight the winning projects from the TV Hack Day, MIPCube Lab and Content 360 competitions.
