Here's another great reason to register now for the Dec. 5th VideoSchmooze Online Video Leadership Forum in NYC: all early bird registrants will be entered in a drawing to win an $850 Samsung 40 inch LED Smart TV. This highly-rated 1080p HDTV's screen is just 1.8 inches thick and is WiFi enabled with all your favorite over-the-top apps integrated. The Smart TV is being graciously provided by NeuLion. The only qualifier is you must actually be in attendance when we do the drawing on Dec. 5th.
The early bird discounted ticket price is $95, which includes the full morning program through 12 noon, continental breakfast and networking. 5-pack and 10-pack group rates are also available.
VideoSchmooze is shaping up to be a premier morning of learning and networking. The program kicks off with a panel of 4 of Wall Street's top video industry analysts (including the #1 ranked cable/broadband analyst and #1 ranked entertainment analyst) discussing what's really driving the video industry. We'll dive into topics like pay-TV's affordability challenge, OTT competition, skyrocketing sports licensing fees, advertising, changing consumer behaviors, the role of devices and much more.
Then we'll explore TV Everywhere's key opportunities and challenges with Ian Blaine, CEO of thePlatform and SVP, Comcast Converged Products, who is in the middle of enabling this strategic imperative. Following, my colleague Colin Dixon will host an innovation case study with Aereo's founder and CEO Chet Kanojia. The final session of the morning will be a panel on cracking the code on multi-platform success with executives from AOL, zeebox and Collective.
The lead sponsors for this 9th VideoSchmooze are Adobe, AOL, Collective and thePlatform, with supporting sponsors Akamai, Undertone and NeuLion.
VideoSchmooze is a must-attend event for busy executives seeking clarity on the most critical business and technology issues in the video industry.
