Monday, March 16

Hyatt Regency Austin
Zilker Ballroom 1
208 Barton Springs Rd


Over the last 5 years, video journalism has experienced a massive rise in popularity due to a number of key factors including: changing user behaviors (consumption pattern/expectations), increased internet accessibility and speed, growth in viewing platforms such as over-the-top and mobile devices, global scale due to YouTube's impressive growth and, most importantly, a huge increase in premium ad revenue to be collected.

In this panel, we'll talk shop with some of the video industry's most brilliant minds, across different organizations and platforms to learn how this rise has affected: journalism, business, product, audience development and the forward trajectory of these companies.
