Cablefax TV Innovation Summit 2015

Will you blaze a trail forward or get left behind?
October 1, 2015 | Yale Club, NYC


The TV Innovation Summit on October 1, is an intensive one-day summit that will examine how rapid changes in the TV ecosystem are dramatically shifting the landscape for content distributors, programmers, technology innovators and other industry players. The industry is at a historic crossroads—and fortunes could be made and lost based on the decisions executives make this year as they plan budgets for 2016.
Opening Keynote: Marci Ryvicker, managing director & sr. equity analyst for Wells Fargo will kick off the Summit with an honest look at where we stand, where it’s going and what all of this industry consolidation ultimately means for the business in 2016 and beyond.

We’ll ask the tough questions of our high-level speakers:
  • How does the shift to OTT content and “skinny bundles” affect the revenue outlook for all involved, and what sectors are positioned to benefit?
  • How do disruptive live streaming services like Periscope and Meerkat alter the priorities and challenge everything from windowing to content management in a TV Everywhere world?
  • everything migrating to the cloud and landing on multiple screens, what’s the future of content business rules and rights issues?
  • And now that multiplatform measurement has finally arrived, how do advertisers, content owners and distributor forge a new alliance to supercharge the business—with programmatic and other innovations taking a bigger role
It’s no longer about preserving the existing ecosystem. That ship has sailed. These days, it’s about how all camps in the entertainment and media space can work together more collaboratively than ever before to leverage current reality while creating new business models that grow the pie and give consumers unprecedented freedom. It won’t be easy, but this industry is up to the task. And only the most innovative companies will survive and thrive in the new TV ecosystem emerging from the ashes of the old.
