This session is laser focused on every type of risk encountered by media companies in today’s volatile media world. It is an ideal session for media technology professionals wanting to grow their awareness of new types of risks that could radically affect their work as well as how to manage them effectively.
The third day will open with a tale of two specific sectors that were affected by pandemic in both similar and different ways: SVOD and AVOD economics. While streaming in general surged on the back of increased consumer demand, advertising expenditure was hit by the pandemic, impairing the increasing interest in AVOD business models, and consolidating the success of subscription-based economics. However, SVOD remains an expensive proposition given the level of content diversity demanded by consumers as well as the competition in the market. Everyone is looking for some sort of differentiation, which makes AVOD and hybrid models still appealing to media executives. What is the state of the nation now and how are things going to pan out in the future? We will talk to a panel of executives experienced in monetization models to understand this in a session packed with money-related insights.
This session features a panel who examine suppliers’ transition to as-a-service models. The expedited move to remote working caused by the pandemic has forced technology suppliers in the media industry to accelerate their transition from large and infrequent monetary inflows to smaller and more continuous cash streams. At the same time, the pandemic has also forced suppliers to prop up virtual and continuous engagement with their customers due to the absence of trade shows. What are the major implications of this for technology providers in the media industry? How do you plan, develop and price the new as-a-service offerings? How do you forecast revenue streams in a time of unprecedented change? We try to answer these questions with a panel of leaders at major technology suppliers in our industry who explore the challenges and benefits of as-a-service models, and how to make it work.
