#smwest Session: Over-The-Top, And Into Your Bank Account

As more live, linear broadcasts (and networks) are deployed on secondary screens, the need for ad insertion/replacement models is emerging. What are the functional building blocks required to originate the signal and stream? At the Streaming Media West show next week, (#smwest) this session will focus on how programmers and aggregators monetize TV Everywhere deployments. How are the ad breaks recognized and marked – and what happens in order to re-purpose the broadcast ads for these additional screens? This session will explore the technical workflows, business requirements and rules and ‘need to know’ elements to help get a video ad deployment up and running. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Matt Smith, VP, OTT Strategy & Solutions, Envivio
  • David Adams, VP, Corporate Development, Accedo
  • Greg Philpott, CEO, mDialog
  • Raleigh Harbour, GM, Platform, Adap.tv
  • Mark London, VP, Ad Solutions, Fox Networks Group
