Alon Weinberg, VP business development OTT market and OTTilus at Pilat Media, will partake in a panel discussion on Wednesday, Nov. 20. The panel discussions is titled "Build Buy or Partner; What is the route to telco monetization?"
"Broadcast-quality media continues to make its way to all consumer screens over the open Internet. Therefore, content owners, broadcasters, and service providers need to expand and differentiate their OTT offerings, but at the same time maximize operational efficiency given that OTT monetization is still very uncertain. Key to their success will be an OTT solution that tightly integrates business operations around workflows, metadata, rights, ad campaigns, and analytics -- while supporting ubiquitous delivery of premium content to all devices and providing a great user experience. With Pilat Media's outstanding experience and expertise in TV Everywhere solutions, we look forward to demonstrating at the OTTtv World Summit how our OTTilus solutions provide a smooth path to introducing, delivering, and managing OTT services."
