DirecTV, NBC, Fox and Turner Discuss The Requirements For TV Everywhere Enablement

sm-west-arowsAt the Streaming Media West show, taking place Nov. 19-20 in Huntington Beach, members of the Open Authentication Technology Committee (OATC) will provide an insight into how authorization will be critical to future TVE implementations. Speakers will discuss topics including how best to determine a user’s entitlement to view content, how enabling visibility to viewing behaviors benefits both research metrics gathering and credential sharing prevention and how a common approach to live signaling allows for stream restrictions and digital program insertion. The panel will also discuss efforts around improving and harmonizing user experience and TV Everywhere authentication. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Peter Rosenberg, Enterprise Architect, Digital Media, NBC Universal
  • Christen Chambers, VP, Business Operations and Software Solutions, Fox Networks Group
  • Michael Wise, VP, Multi-Platform Distribution Technologies, Turner Broadcasting System
  • David Schlacht, Senior Director, Technology Ventures, DirecTV
  • Joel Huff, Group Product Manager, Primetime, Adobe
