Tracy Swedlow is the CEO, publisher, and editor-in-chief of InteractiveTV Today (ITVT), which she founded in 1998, and is also the executive producer and director of the TV of Tomorrow Show (TVOT) conferences.

Her writing has appeared in many leading newspapers and trade publications, including the New York Times, the San Francisco ExaminerPC WorldMultimedia World and VR World.

Prior to founding ITVT, she was chief evangelist at eGroups.com (now Yahoo! Groups); new media editor at PC World; a producer and director for Telemorphix, a pioneering interactive TV company, and a video producer at Steve Michelson Productions in San Francisco.

A regular presenter at ITV industry conferences and panels, and a frequent guest on television and radio shows, she actively communicates her understanding of the history of interactive TV; its current trends, technologies, content innovations and applications; the complexities of executive leadership and industrial dynamics; and where she thinks the medium and the ITV industry will and must go in the future to audiences around the world. She has served as the founding chairperson and judge of the “Television” and the “Broadband” categories respectively for The Webby Awards since its inception and regularly produce editorial events and awards programs benefiting the ITV industry (e.g. The annual TV of Tomorrow Show).

Jack Perry is a pioneer in the media technology industry, creating a number of ground-breaking solutions for broadcasters and electronics manufacturers over the course of his 30-year career. In 2009, Perry founded Syncbak, Inc., whose products and services power more than 14 million hours of live streaming annually for OTT destinations like Paramount+, Hulu, fubo TV, Apple TV, Amazon, NFL and more. Syncbak’s technology reaches 99 percent of the US population across 209 markets, representing 99 station groups and all major networks, including CBS, ABC, FOX, NBC and the CW.

VUit leverages Syncbak’s industry-leading live stream platform and its proprietary live DAI technology called adSync to deliver free, hyper-local content to viewers anytime, anywhere.

Prior to Syncbak, Perry was President and CEO of TitanTV (formerly Decisionmark Corp.), a 2004 Inc. 500 fastest growing company. During Perry’s thirteen-year tenure with this company, he developed the technology used by satellite companies and broadcasters to manage the delivery of network programming over satellite.
