CM|IP Presentation: Maximizing the Value of Content Across All Platforms
Just about all aspects of the OTT industry are being massively restructured. Rapid changes in technology, user-behavior and business models have created a gap between how consumers want to experience and pay for entertainment and media and how companies produce and distribute their offerings. How can we reach our audience and keep them coming back for more? This is a question facing many broadcasters and content providers in an increasingly competitive online video market. The answer lies in building an understanding of who the audience is, how they behave and what they value… and translating that information into VOD products. In this presentation, Martijn will share his experience and talk about how you can maximize the value of content across a variety of platform.
Big Data & Big Brother: News, Privacy & Piracy
So many bits and bytes, screens everywhere. The average consumer feels overwhelmed with the constant barrage of media. Similarly, national and local networks are extremely pressured to provide up-to-the-second coverage. Podcasters and vloggers provide serious competition. How does today’s newsroom update its tools and practices to remain relevant? How do AI, AR, better workflow and other tools help or hinder efficient practices given the contradictions inherent in speed v. accuracy, volume v. depth? What to do about authentication, data overload, pushback on privacy, content piracy?
The Super-Fan Journey: Using Social, Mobile & OTT to Segment & Monetize Sports Video
