BVE (Broadcast Video Expo) 2014, the UK’s largest trade event showcasing the latest technology and trends for consumer consumption of content on any platform (25-27 February, ExCEL, London) will focus on content delivery, new platforms and explain to content owners how to reach today’s audiences.
Last year there were over 15,000 attendees at BVE, and when polled they said that the primary reason for attending the show was to find out about new products and services, and almost a fifth expressed a need to understand the “Connected World”, particularly how you make money out of a “free” service. To address this need, the Connected Theatre and dedicated exhibition area at BVE 2014 is being bolstered and spotlighted.
BVE 2014 will be delivering a stellar line up of speakers at the Connected Theatre, to help educate the industry on the key issues and trends in this vital element of the broadcast chain.
Headlining the conference will be Edward Humphrey, the British Film Institute’s Director of Digital, who will share insight on the recently launched BFI Player, the new VoD platform that allows the UK to access the BFI’s archive of British film.
“The launch of the BFI Player is a major digital milestone in our audience ambitions. I’m looking forward to sharing our progress at BVE London as well as hearing from what other content owners and broadcasters are doing,” commented Edward Humphrey, BFI Director of Digital.
The Connected Theatre will play host to a number of industry speakers who will share and assess consumer trends including, Ralph Rivera, Director of Future Media, BBC, and Jamie Hindhaugh, Chief Operating Officer, BT Sport, as well as models for successful delivery and monetisation of content in the digital, multiplatform age.
