The Agile Operator: Success in the Age of Quantum Video

May 13, 2019

The ‘Netflixification’ of TV is now a common theme in discussions of TV Present. For TDG clients, this is old news. In 2006, we first depicted the rise of broadband video and on-demand viewing as the beginning of a major paradigm shift. This turn away from traditional single-source ‘fixed’ access and viewing models, and toward quantum models – i.e., dynamic, multi-source, multi-context experiences – characterize today’s TV and video viewing.

With a combined 80 years of experience in the fields of broadband, pay-TV, and video entertainment, three of TDG’s top analysts will speak on topics central to those charting a course in this quantum future.
