Multi-Screen Summit Expands Lineup of International Video Leaders
Monetizing Multi-Screen Video Conference Brings Biggest Names in Content and Operations from Around the World to NYC on April 27
ACTON, Mass. – New York City will be the global center for multi-screen video on Wednesday, April 27th, as entertainment, cable, telecom and technology leaders from around the world congregate for the Monetizing Multi-Screen Video Summit. Uniquely focused on creative ways to monetize video on any device, the event features executives from Liberty Global, Vodafone, France Telecom, Virgin Media, Turk Telekom, Cablevision Mexico, Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, Rogers, TiVo, MTV and many others.
“We’re examining how operators, content providers and advertisers are collaborating to create the multi-screen video market around the world,” said Yvette Kanouff, president of SeaChange International, the event organizer. “This event will enable discussions with global video leaders about where multi-screen services are deploying today and how they are monetizing through over-the-top, content bundling, advertising, social media and personalized applications.”
How and where consumers can access video is rapidly expanding according to Screen Digest, which estimates there will be more than 25 billion connectable devices (tablets, iPods, mobile phones, PC, TVs, etc.) installed globally by 2014. If even a percentage of those devices are used for video consumption – the firm predicts approximately 30 percent of “TV oriented” devices in North America will be connected during the same time frame – the potential opportunity and audience size is massive.
The Summit includes the world’s leading media executives:
Christine Mitchell - Group Head of Video Content, Vodafone Group
Martin Conan - Devices - Head of Display Delivery, France Telecom Orange
Ian Mecklenburgh - Director Consumer Platforms and Devices, Virgin Media
Guillermo Salcedo Culebro - Chief Marketing Officer, Cablevision SA de CV
