[itvt] is pleased to announce that TVOT NYC 2016, our seventh annual East Coast TV of Tomorrow Show (TVOT) event, will take place Thursday, December 8th at New York's famous SVA Theatre (333 W. 23rd Street).
TVOT NYC packs all the excitement of our flagship TV of Tomorrow Show, which is marking its 10th anniversary this year, into a highly focused, dialog-driven, one-day "intensive." The show--which is carefully designed to encourage networking and deal-making--enables the pay-TV and OTT operators, device manufacturers, social media companies, entrepreneurs and technologists who are building the TV and video platforms of tomorrow to engage in a productive exchange of ideas with the brands, broadcasters, networks, agencies, data/measurement specialists, marketers, investors, producers, developers, designers, storytellers, social-video influencers, and other stakeholders upon whom the success of those platforms depends.
Once again, we will be offering sponsors and exhibitors a range of innovative and effective ways to drive awareness of their brand. We are pleased to announce that advanced-advertising leader, Videology, has already signed on as TVOT NYC 2016's Premier Sponsor!
As previous attendees can attest (see testimonials below), TVOT and TVOT NYC consistently attract a veritable "who's who" of the interactive/advanced-TV, pay-TV, OTT-TV, advertising, broadcasting/programming, data/measurement, consumer-electronics and social-video industries. The shows have been widely praised for offering a uniquely inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable experience, unlike any other tradeshow or conference. Moreover, over the past few years, they have become the events of choice for established TV players to meet and network with the creative and business communities that have emerged on YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat, Periscope, YouNow, Twitch and other social-video platforms to address the rapidly evolving viewing habits and programming preferences of Millennials and Gen Z. They have also become one of the leading venues for the exploration of the relationship between big data and advanced advertising.
As the end-of-year event-of-record for the advanced-TV/video industry, TVOT NYC 2016 will also provide attendees with their last, best opportunity to fully understand the significance of the many industry developments that have taken place in 2016, and to hone their strategic grasp of the key issues that will be shaping the industry in the New Year.

Patrick Donoghue, Founder & CEO, Next Stop Willoughby (Emmy Award Winner)A DIFFERENT KIND OF EVENT...
While [itvt]'s TV of Tomorrow Show events feature an exhibit hall, keynotes and panel sessions, that's where their similarity to other industry conferences and tradeshows ends:
- They are the only industry events to focus on the production, delivery, user experience and business of interactive and advanced TV across multiple platforms and media (e.g. pay-TV, smart TV, tablets, smartphones, OTT, social networks, VOD, game consoles, programming, advertising, tcommerce, transmedia "storyworlds," AR/VR, social broadcasting, etc.)
- Ensuring that attendees are able to meet and schmooze with the right people is a primary focus of the events. One of our principal goals is to introduce to one another people and companies with complementary visions and solutions.
- The events are not "pay-for-play": speakers are selected for their expertise alone, not because they, or the company they represent, have paid a speaker's fee.
- The events' panel sessions are developed through an ongoing dialog with the readership of the [itvt] newsletter, allowing us to ensure that they are topical, timely and accurately reflect the interests and concerns of the industry.
- The panel sessions are highly interactive, with debates, open mics, polls and other features designed to promote discussion.
- The events also offer in-depth Workshop/Master Class sessions, where smaller groups of participants have the opportunity to dialog with leading industry experts and explore new technologies, platforms and media in a more focused and hands-on way.
- The events feature innovative staging, designed to facilitate debate and communication between panelists and interaction with attendees.
- The events are designed to promote cross-pollination between the interactive/multiplatform TV community and other creative communities, such as social-video creators/influencers, artists, performers, fashion designers, interactive storytellers, independent filmmakers, and more.
- Finally, the events are designed to be fun. They feature entertainments, challenges, contests, and a range of other social activities.
TVOT NYC 2016 will be broadly organized into three tracks, featuring over 100 industry-expert speakers and panelists:
- A Today Track will focus on the hard data that can be gleaned--and the lessons that can be learned--from the many deployments of advanced TV and video that are already in the field today. Representatives from the operators, technology providers, device manufacturers, broadcasters, networks, advertising agencies, brands, measurement/analytics companies, OTT programmers, social media platforms, MCN's, UI/UX designers, application developers and other players that are currently implementing interactive and multiplatform television in the US and beyond will present examples of their work, and provide attendees with new deployment statistics, reports from the field, best practices and other insider insights.
- A Tomorrow Track will provide attendees with the opportunity to explore how the various platforms, technologies, screens, standards, content genres and business models that make up today's advanced-TV/video space are likely to evolve over the coming months and years, and to identify new platforms, new technologies, new forms of programming, new kinds of data, new monetization strategies, and other developments that are likely to impact the space in the future. Highly interactive, dialog-driven sessions will enable attendees not only to hear from the companies, organizations and people that are shaping the future of interactive/multiplatform/social/advanced TV, but to question those experts and provide them with feedback on their efforts.
- A Workshop/Master Class Track will provide attendees with a more intimate and hands-on environment in which to: 1) see and learn about promising new advanced-TV technologies, standards and business strategies; 2) get their questions and concerns answered by subject matter experts; and 3) gain practical skills for implementing new TV experiences.
In addition to these three tracks, the event will feature:
- Vendor booths and demos.
- Gourmet catering.
- A vibrant cocktail party where attendees will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with many of the most influential figures shaping tomorrow's television.

Helen Situ, VR Evangelist, NextVRISSUES IN FOCUS
The [itvt] editorial team develops the agenda for our TV of Tomorrow Show events through an extensive dialoguing process with the readership of the [itvt] newsletter (which includes many key industry players), in order to ensure that each show covers all the issues that are currently of most pressing importance to the industry. As a result, we typically announce the agenda just a few weeks before each show. However, some of the issues that we expect to explore at TVOT NYC 2016 include:
- Reports from the field: How recent deployments of TV Everywhere, virtual MVPD/"skinny-bundle" services, niche, direct-to-consumer OTT programming offerings, interactive programming and advertising, live social broadcasting, dynamic and addressable advertising, tcommerce, programmatic TV, social TV, programming-discovery technology, measurement and analytics services, social-video storytelling and marketing, virtual/augmented reality experiences, and other advanced-TV/video innovations are faring in the real world; and what the success or otherwise of these deployments tells us about the business models for the TV of tomorrow. Which advanced-TV platforms, services and content offerings are attracting audiences and generating revenues today and how?
- The ongoing challenges involved in accurately measuring and understanding TV viewership on non-traditional platforms; and how audience measurement is being reinvented in order to take into account the growth of cross-platform viewing, time- and place-shifting, and other ongoing changes in viewer behavior.
- The increasingly important role "Big Data" is playing in the television and advertising industries: the new forms of data that are being generated by interactive, connected and social TV, and how brands and agencies can take advantage of these data to make their campaigns more targeted, more accountable and thus more effective.
- The emerging relationship between big data and creative--both in the programming and advertising spaces.
- The emergence of "virtual MVPD's/MSO's" and unbundled programming services that are seeking to take advantage of TV delivery over-the-top (OTT); and the implications of this phenomenon for traditional TV content providers, operators, marketers and advertisers, as well as for Multi-Channel Networks (MCN's) and other players.
- The implications of the increasing importance of subscription as a monetization model for OTT TV.
- Standalone programming apps vs. TV Everywhere.
- New developments in native advertising, branded content and episodic marketing.
- The potential of tcommerce--whether on pay-TV systems, smart TV's, second-screen devices or social-media platforms--to revolutionize the economics of television and advertising.
- The impact of "TV Everywhere" on viewing habits, audience measurement, advertising strategies, network and pay-TV business models and more; and how best to improve content discoverability and personalization, subscriber-authentication, and other elements of the TVE user experience in order to foster the medium's continued growth.
- The emergence of Facebook Live, Periscope, YouNow, Twitch, Beam and other live social-broadcasting services as platforms for programming, marketing and advertising.
- Live social broadcasting's impact on the body politic and society at large.
- Understanding the respective roles now being played by Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat in the television and advertising spaces--what are those companies' TV goals, how likely are they to achieve them, and what do other social-TV players need to do in order to survive and thrive alongside such powerful companies?
- Understanding the possible impact that other social media platforms, such as Pinterest, Reddit and LinkedIn, could have on the television/video space.
- The implications for YouTube and other players of Facebook's increasing importance as a video platform.
- Where is second-screen interactivity/social TV succeeding and where has it fallen short? What forms of programming and advertising are best complemented via interactivity on the second screen?
- The implications of the incorporation of ACR and other "intelligent" technologies into smart TV's--and the increasing role of intelligence in the TV ecosystem in general: What kinds of opportunities does truly smart television make possible?
- The significance of recent moves by MVPD's to embrace Netflix and other forms of OTT content.
- Best practices for developing, producing, distributing, promoting and monetizing interactive TV content.
- The potential impact of Instagram Video and other "micro-video" platforms on programming and advertising.
- Questions of intellectual property rights, including new issues raised by multiplatform TV distribution, by the revitalization of longtail programming content, and by the emergence of related content as part of the television experience.
- The validity and implications of the argument--originally espoused by FX CEO, John Landgraf--that we are seeing "peak TV in America" and that there is now "simply too much television."
- The extent to which--in light of, among other things, Netflix's recent anemic subscriber-acquisition numbers--there is still room for growth in the OTT TV space.
- ATSC 3.0 and other recent and pending developments in interactive and advanced TV standards, and how these standards need to evolve going forward.
- US cable's Reference Design Kit (RDK) and its implications for the global pay-TV industry.

- The threat posed to video advertising by adblockers--and the new technologies and strategies that are emerging to counter that threat.
- The evolving regulatory environment--including such issues as Net Neutrality and the FCC's attempts to "unlock the set-top box."
- The emergence of the app--whether on connected-TV or second-screen platforms, or across both simultaneously--as the gateway to the television experience: is our conception of the app still beholden to the PC/desktop model, and, if so, what would be a truly television-centered conception of the app?
- The emergence of virtual reality (VR) as a platform for storytelling and news reporting.
- The emergence of VR as a platform for advertising and marketing.
- The extent to which the "cord-cutting" phenomenon presents an existential threat to the pay-TV industry; and the extent to which new developments in pay-TV, such as "TV Everywhere," virtual MVPD services, and dynamic ad insertion for VOD will help operators defend against the threats it poses.
- The future of TV design: How to ensure that usability and high-quality design become a core element of the advanced-TV user experience, and not just an afterthought; strategies for designing consistent, cross-screen and cross-platform interactive video experiences; making the business case for good design; the complex and evolving relationship between design, data and content discovery/navigation; and the impact of new technologies such as 4K UHD on TV user interface design.
- The emergence of natural user interfaces, including gesture- and voice-controlled interfaces, interfaces powered by facial recognition, and more.
- Understanding international advanced-TV markets: opportunities and risks in Europe, Asia, Latin America and beyond.

- The on-air incorporation of social media into sportscasts, news shows and other forms of live programming, and the impact of this phenomenon on the content and monetization of television.

- The current state of investment in the interactive/advanced TV space. How are new investment trends, such as crowdfunding and accelerators, impacting the industry?

- The real world as platform: The emergence of 360-degree immersive interactive TV experiences that subvert traditional notions of the screen.

- The diversification of the cable business: How will the emergence of new cable offerings such as smart home services (e.g., broadband-based monitoring and security and automation) impact the cable industry going forward?
- The increasingly importance of fan communities in the development, promotion and monetization of programming.

[itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording of the TVOT SF 2016 session, "TV and Video Innovation in the 2016 Presidential Election." The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"This session--falling the day after the California primary--will explore the role that advanced-TV/video advertising, new data and analytics technologies and methodologies, and new video-engagement solutions have been playing in the 2016 presidential race, and will also examine how the election might in turn have an impact on these areas. Among other things, panelists will debate whether Republican presidential candidate, Jeb Bush, was correct when he stated, 'I don't think TV advertising has been nearly as effective as it has in the past for any campaign,' and--if Mr. Bush was indeed correct--why this would be the case.
In addition, panelists will examine the role that social video has played in the race, both as an alternative to advertising in the various campaigns' promotional, fund-raising and opinion-shaping strategies, and as a news source for those campaigns' supporters in an era when--according to a new study by the non-partisan Media Insight Project--only 6% of the public has 'a lot of confidence' in the mainstream media." Panelists included:
- Carol Davidsen, VP of Political Technology, comScore
- Ed Knudson, VP of Product and Strategy, Canoe (Moderator)
- Brent McGoldrick, CEO, Deep Root Analytics
- Dritan Nesho, Head of Microsoft Pulse, Microsoft
- Steven Oh, Chief Business Officer, The Young Turks
- Professor James Lance Taylor, University of San Francisco
[itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording of the TVOT SF 2016 session, "Reinventing Programming for a New Generation."
The session was described in the show brochure as follows: "This session will explore the new forms of storytelling and the new programming formats that are emerging on mobile and social-video platforms (such as YouTube, Periscope, YouNow, Snapchat, Instagram, Vine, and beyond), and what they tell us about the evolving viewing behavior of the Millennials and Gen-Zers who make up the bulk of their audiences. In addition, it will investigate how these new programming formats are reinventing the relationship between talent and audience; examine the ways in which they are being marketed, distributed and monetized; assess their potential to impact the creative side of the TV business in general; and debate what established media companies and operators need to learn from them in order to reach and retain the TV and video audiences of tomorrow."
