TVOT 2016: The Millennial Generation's Anthem: I Want My Advanced-TV

As the largest subset of the population, Millennials' video-viewing habits are driving cataclysmic shifts in media and advertising. This conversation will explore the changing ways they are consuming traditional television content across all screens, and how DISH Media Sales is utilizing technology to help marketers reach them. Participants include:

  • Adam Lichstein, President of Seller Platforms, Tremor Video
  • Adam Lowy, GM of Advanced TV, DISH Network and Sling TV

We will be announcing details of additional TVOT 2016 keynotes, firesides and Master Classes next week:

The TV Ads of Tomorrow Look Like the TV Ads of Yesterday 

Has the creative side of TV advertising been wrongly swept up in the swirl of disruption facing the media side of the business today? Six-second Vine ads, vertical videos designed for Snapchat, interactive video ads, etc. may add shiny new "icing" to a campaign foundation, but make no mistake--the :15 and :30 second ad is, and will continue to be, the marketer's crown jewel and most precious asset. 

John Roland, Chairman and CEO of Extreme Reach, will share trends and make the case that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

 

[itvt] is pleased to announce that we have updated the TV of Tomorrow Show 2016 Schedule of Sessions with more details about the June 8th keynote fireside with Tony Goncalves, SVP of Strategy and Business Development at AT&T's Entertainment Group. We have also included this information below.

We will be announcing details of additional TVOT 2016 keynotes, firesides and Master Classes this week and next.

Keynote Fireside: Beyond OTT--Connecting the Dots in a Fragmented Ecosystem 

Tony Goncalves, AT&T &  Rick Howe, the iTV Doctor

A business this complex sometimes forgets the viewer at its core. Consumers win no matter what, and they're voting with time and money to watch content not available within the pay-TV ecosystem. The solution is not live or VOD, short- or long-form content, traditional TV or OTT; it's all the above while delivering on a simplified value proposition. 

In conversation with Rick Howe (The iTV Doctor), Tony Goncalves, SVP of Strategy and Business Development at AT&T's Entertainment Group, will discuss what consumers are telling us they want from the industry and how we can get there. That includes reaching Millennial viewers and building authentic relationships meant to last a lifetime. 

Plus get a closer look at AT&T's video strategy, upcoming OTT services and integration across the company's various lines of business. From technology to product and along the content value chain, those who help simplify and solve this equation will win for the long-term.

Nominations Deadline for the 13th Annual Awards for Leadership in Interactive and Multiplatform Television Extended to May 17th!

 
Over the past few days, we've received a number of requests to extend the deadline for submitting nominations for the Awards for Leadership in Interactive and Multiplatform Television. 
 
The fault is actually ours: we were so busy putting together the 10th Anniversary TV of Tomorrow Show (June 7th-8th in San Francisco) that we didn't send out our usual barrage of reminders about the deadline--with the result that the deadline seems to have caught many of our readers unawares.
 
To remedy this, we're extending the deadline to midnight, Tuesday May 17th. Our apologies for any confusion.
 
The Awards, which will be presented at the TV of Tomorrow Show, recognize excellence in nine categories: 
 
  • "Most Significant Impact": the company or organization that has had the most significant impact on the industry as a whole over the past year (i.e. May 23rd, 2015 through May 17th, 2016);
  • "Most Significant Newcomer": the company or organization that was the most significant newcomer/breakthrough player of the past year; 
  • "Most Significant Technology, Platform or Product": the company or organization that invented the most innovative and disruptive technology, platform or product of the past year; 
  • "Most Significant Content Offering": the company or organization that created the most innovative and disruptive content offering of the past year; 
  • "Most Innovative Design or User Interface": the company or organization that created the most innovative and disruptive design/user interface/content-navigation schema of the past year; 
  • "Achievement in Advanced Advertising": the company, organization or individual that did the most to realize the promise of advanced advertising (including such areas as operator-driven single-screen advertising, connected-TV advertising, second-screen/social-TV advertising, addressable advertising, dynamic advertising insertion, transmedia advertising, interactive branded content, measurement, programmatic buying, data usage, and more) over the past year.
  • "Individual Leadership I": an individual who demonstrated notable leadership in the interactive, multiplatform TV industry over the past year, and whose efforts helped move that industry forward; 
  • "Individual Leadership II": an individual who demonstrated notable leadership in the interactive, multiplatform TV industry over the past year, and whose efforts helped move that industry forward; 
  • "ITV All-Star": an individual who has a long-term track record of leadership in the interactive television industry, and who is an appropriate candidate for membership in an ITV Hall of Fame.

  • Special Track Will Be Curated by nScreenMedia, Sponsored by Verizon Digital Media Services, Inc.
[itvt] is pleased to announce The Bridge, a special TVOT SF 2016 track curated by industry-analyst firm, nScreenMedia, and sponsored by Verizon Digital Media Services, Inc.
 
Why is the special track called "The Bridge"? nScreenMedia founder and senior analyst, Colin Dixon, explains:
 
"The hallmarks of the television experience are quality and reliability, coupled with robust content-monetization models. As video emerges as the lingua franca of the connected society, the challenge is to bridge that same television experience to every screen a consumer may be using. That is what The Bridge at TVOT is dedicated to discussing. From live streaming to monetization, the speakers participating in The Bridge track will bring their extensive knowledge of the industry to bear on the most pressing issues facing that industry."
 
Topics covered will include:
 
  • The future of ottTV delivery.
  • How to deliver live events at scale.
  • The reinvention of the linear experience online.
  • What it means to deliver a quality experience on a smartphone.
  • What does the money stream look like online, and will people pay for quality?
  • The role of the interface in selling the service.
  • How to achieve quality delivery to all screens.
 
We will be announcing more details about the The Bridge at TVOT SF 2016--which will take place on Day 1 of the show (Tuesday, June 7th) and which will be offered to attendees at no additional charge--in the [itvt] newsletter shortly.
