AOL served up 3.7 billion video ads during the month, the largest number by a single property ever recorded by comScore.

Ackerman leads a brand new business group within that is developing innovative programmatic, or automated, technologies that serve the TV and video advertising industries today and in the future when video has fully converged, regardless of screen. His keynote will focus on some of the massive shift in video advertising across all screens happening right now in video, particularly how it is bought and sold by advertisers and publishers, and how these changes have necessitated the need for content and media technologies that adapt as quickly as the consumption habits of digital video viewers.

Dan will be joined by more than 100 speakers from leading media, broadcast and MSO companies discussing the latest business, content and technology subjects around online video.
