The Changing Ecosystem of Media Delivery

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Delivering media content is becoming ever more challenging. Information controls implemented at a national or local level have made it in some cases nearly impossible to reach and engage with consumers of broadcast and media content.

We are bringing together a panel that represents international broadcasters, independent media and filmmakers to talk about their challenges in providing content to their audiences. Focusing on Iran, we will look at how people in the country are accessing international news, information and streaming media, while seeing services they trust blocked online and satellite signals jammed. We will consider what role can be played by content owners in reaching this audience and keeping them connected.

The panellists will discuss how traditional delivery models need to adapt in this new distribution environment, and what the different types of content provider can learn from each other in reaching their audience. We will discuss how "mobile first" strategies could help, and how important it is to engage with the audience the content owners are trying to reach.
