Richard Friedel, executive vice president of Fox Networks Engineering & Operations, Richard Friedel discusses how he keeps up with emerging technologies and shares his tips for getting through his door and making a successful sales pitch. Many of the innovations to come from the IT side today – as increasingly do competitors such as Amazon, Google and Netflix. Richard Friedel, executive vice president and general manager of Fox Networks Engineering & Operations, joined Fox more than 20 years ago following a stint at ABC and prior to that, at Washington NBC affiliate, WRC-TV - his first professional television job. Over those years, he has seen remarkable advances in technology – and been on the receiving end of countless sales pitches from hopeful vendors. We caught up with Richard in mid-March to discover how he keeps abreast of emerging technologies and get his tips for getting through his door and making a successful sales pitch.

Chris Brown, EVP Conventions and Business Operations, NAB, discusses evolving programming elements and marketing outreach. He explains how NAB add programs like the M.E.T. and Google Talks, the Facebook Live Pavilion and the M.E.T. 360 Studio. It hardly seems a year ago that we last spoke!

Igor Kroll, CEO, Veset, discusses Veset’s current product range and where it is heading. Their main product, Nimbus, delivers ‘self-service SaaS’ for customers. Nimbus enables Veset’s customers to deliver linear TV channels without the need to invest in any hardware or to commit to long-term contracts in any way, shape or form. One of the key benefits of the true cloud playout is that customers pay for what they actually use, which opens the door, not only for reducing costs for traditional 24/7 linear channels, but also to a completely new area of temporary, event-driven channels. When was Veset founded and what was the company’s vision? Veset was founded in 2011 in Latvia by a group of experts from IT, broadcast and telecoms backgrounds. Our vision was to create a pure cloud playout solution. We were surprised that this part of the broadcast workflow chain was lagging so far behind everything else in terms of migrating to the cloud – even in 2011. Tell us about Veset’s current product range and where you heading in the future. We have focused on developing “native” cloud playout solutions right from the start, and this remains our focus today. Our main product, Nimbus,...
