Interview: Brian Greene, Professor of Physics and Mathematics at Columbia University, Discusses his New, Video-Centric Online Educational Platform, World Science U
In this recently recorded interview with [itvt] editor-in-chief, Tracy Swedlow, Brian Greene, professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, discusses his work on the educational video platform, World Science U, which launched last April. The highly social and interactive platform uses a combination of live and on-demand, long-form and short-form video, social media and an innovative interface, in order to allow viewers--ranging from interested amateurs to university students--to navigate, discover and learn more about a range of topics in physics, mathematics, cosmology and related sciences.
[itvt] is pleased to present a video recording of the TVOT 2014 session, "The Virtual MSO." The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"For years the MSO's wouldn't play in each others' sandboxes. It was just too expensive to build a second physical plant, and the big guys didn't want to be limited to anything less than 100% market share. Then a few smaller guys (like Wide Open West and Knology) started overbuilding, along with DIRECTV and DISH, then Verizon and AT&T. The 100% market share in a local market was a historical artifact.
[itvt] is pleased to present a video recording of the TVOT 2014 keynote session, in which Kenneth "KC" Estenson, SVP and General Manager of CNN Digital, demo'd and discussed CNN's new CNNx app (note: the network launched the app across its audience base last week). The keynote was described in the TVOT show brochure as follows:
[itvt] is pleased to present a video recording of the TVOT 2014 session, "The Future of the Living Room" The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"Despite the increasing popularity of TV Everywhere and other mobile-TV services, the big screen in the living room continues to be the center of most people's TV-viewing experience. This session will identify the most important new technologies and applications that are emerging to enhance the living room-based viewing experience, and will explore how these innovations will alter our conception of television going forward.
[itvt] is pleased to present a video recording of the TVOT 2014 session, "Still Not Dead? Debating the Future of Pay-TV" The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"Moderated by Alan Wolk, Global Lead Analyst at Piksel, and taking off from the ideas expounded in his widely disseminated--and controversial--slide deck, 'Still Not Dead: 7 Myths about the Current State of the TV Industry Debunked,' this session will feature two teams of prominent television experts with opposing views on the so-called 'cord-cutting' phenomenon, engaged in a lively debate on the future of pay-TV. Audience participation in the debate will be strongly encouraged!" Panelists included:
[itvt] is pleased to present a video recording of the TVOT 2014 session, "TV Everywhere: Ready to Break Out?" The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"According to a new research report from NPD Group, around 21% of pay-TV customers are now using TV Everywhere services at least once a month--a figure which, while somewhat encouraging when compared to statistics from just last year, shows that TVE still has a long way to go before it can be considered a truly popular medium and its roll-out judged an unqualified success.
