The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has announced the first-ever Online Video Conference (OVC) will take place during the 2015 NAB Show in April. The conference will feature sessions on key issues facing online video providers of original content, as well as those who are seeking to monetise video across multiple platforms. Will Richmond, editor and publisher of VideoNuze, will serve as the host.
One of seven separate conference tracks offered at NAB Show, the Online Video Conference will cover topics such as virtual MVPDs, the migration to OTT, online original content, gaming and sports, user generated content, cross-screen targeting, online advertising metrics and new online video platforms. The conference is designed for senior-most executives from digital media firms in the subscriber-based world of video on demand, OTT, and cable, as well as pure broadband and Internet firms.
“Online video is a major force shaping the future of the content marketplace, presenting opportunities and challenges for stakeholders to reach viewers across multiple platforms,” said Chris Brown, executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations at NAB. “NAB is pleased to offer this new conference that will dive deep into the multitude of issues facing online video.”
