Radio [itvt]: "The Refashioning of Pay-TV's Technology and Content Infrastructure" at TVOT NYC 2014

[itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording of the TVOT NYC 2014 session, "The Refashioning of Pay-TV's Technology and Content Infrastructure." The session was described in the show brochure as follows:

"By most accounts, the past few months have been a rocky time for pay-TV: according to a recent report from Leichtman Research Group, for example, the 13 largest operators in the US (representing 95% of the market) lost 150,000 video subscribers in the third quarter, compared to 25,000 in the same period last year; and nary a day goes by without a story appearing in the business press about the 'decline' or even the 'demise' of pay-TV.

This session brings together representatives of some of the companies that are looking to help pay-TV arrest its video-subscriber losses and revitalize its technology and content infrastructure with innovative solutions that will enable it to adapt to a rapidly evolving video world. Panelists will articulate their visions of the future of pay-TV, and debate and discuss the respective roles that will be played in that future by such new technologies and phenomena as the cable Reference Design Kit (RDK), HTML5, the incorporation of broadband services and applications onto the pay-TV set-top box, the migration to IP, multiscreen delivery, the emergence of cloud-based content services, and more." Panelists included:

  • Steve Donohue, Editor-in-Chief, The Donohue Report (Moderator)
  • Mike Earle, CEO, aioTV
  • Fred Handsman, SVP of Strategic Planning and Business Development, Vubiquity
  • Michael Hawkey, SVP and GM, Sling Media
  • Tara Maitra, EVP and GM of Content and Media Sales, TiVo
  • Bernee Strom, Founder and Executive Chairman, WebTuner
