About IPTV World Conference
Last year, IPTV was about big telephone companies â€“ particularly AT&T and Verizon â€“ moving into the television business. This year, itâ€™s also about television-quality digital video moving to the Web, TV sets, movie screens, cellphones, games â€“ any platform that handles rich media. Itâ€™s about monetization of content across multiple platforms. Itâ€™s about downloadable and streaming video, high-def and mobile TV. Itâ€™s about digital contentâ€™s next big profit center.
If you create or distribute content, itâ€™s about the transformation of your business.
