SintecMedia to Moderate Panel at Media Finance Focus 2014 Conference in Miami
May 19, 2014 --
Geoff Nagel, SintecMedia's vice president of go-to-market strategy, will moderate a panel titled "Non-Linear Revenue Challenges & Opportunities (Achieving ROI on your Content)" at Media Finance Focus 2014 in Miami on May 19. As the 54th annual conference of the Media Financial Management Association (MFM), Media Finance Focus 2014 will bring together media finance executives for three days of educational sessions and networking May 19-21 at the Hilton Miami Downtown. Nagel's panel will take place at 1:40 p.m. EDT in the Concerto Ballroom B.
In addition to Nagel, panelists will include George Krogstie, senior director, program accounting, and subscriber metrics, Time Warner Cable; and Jim Fox, senior vice president and chief accounting officer, Suddenlink Communications. Panelists will discuss how operators approach monetizing nonlinear content today, how it ties to their linear businesses, and what the future might hold given trends such as a la carte and addressable advertising. Each attendee will receive one CPE credit.
"Today's nonlinear distribution models pose unique challenges, as well as opportunities, for operators to monetize content delivered anywhere and at anytime," said Nagel. "For this panel, we're honored that senior executives from prominent operators have agreed to share their unique insights into the rapidly evolving media landscape."
