The Agile Operator: Success in the Age of Quantum Video

Monday, May 13 / 1:30PM-5:00PM

Presented by TDG, a ScreenEngine/ASI Company

The ‘Netflixification’ of TV is now a common theme in discussions of TV Present. For TDG clients, this is old news. In 2006, we first depicted the rise of broadband video and on-demand viewing as the beginning of a major paradigm shift; a turn away from traditional single-source “fixed” access and viewing models, and towards quantum models – the dynamic, multi-source, multi-context experiences that characterize today’s TV and video viewing.

With a combined 80 years of experience in the fields of broadband, pay-TV, and video entertainment, three of TDG’s top analysts will speak on topics central to those charting a course in this quantum future.

•    Michael Greeson, Founder & President, TDG
•    Rob Silvershein, Senior Advisor, Advertising & New Media, TDG
•    Mike Fischer, Senior Advisor, Digital Entertainment, AR/VR, eSports, Gaming, TDG

All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the SVOD Report - High Marks or Just Passing? A Consumer Report Card for Big-3 SVOD and Pay-TV (a $2,500 value).
