|Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are now less than 1.5 months away from Asia’s only broadcast and media event – BroadcastAsia2017 International Conference. We hope you are as excited as we are.
This week, our focus is on Data Analytics. If Gartner’s estimates are anything to go by, there will be more than 25 billion devices hooked up to the internet by 2020, up from ‘just’ five billion today. People now watch TV in a number of different ways – from traditional linear broadcasting to now supplemented by branded mobile applications and browser-based channels. All of this viewing activity generates data, which tells us what people are watching and how they’re going about it. In isolation, a lot of this information will be pretty useless, but bring it all together and new doors begin to open.
The BroadcastAsia team is delighted to introduce to you Four New Data Experts (first time presenting at BroadcastAsia) that we have on board this week. They will be forming a fire side chat to share their views and insights on how they employ a holistic approach towards data analytics particularly for the broadcasting industry. This session will be moderated by Tom Weiss, CEO of Genius Digital. Do not miss this opportunity to hear first-hand from:
- Nada Abdel Samad, Research Director, OSN (Orbit Showtime Network)
- Jeffrey C. Salazar, I.T. Manager, Asian Vision Cable
- Paul Moss, General Manager, Media Prima Digital
- Debbie Leishman, COO, Paywizard
