It’s been an exciting week here at GigaOM HQ. We’ve been busy putting the final touches on the third edition of NewTeeVee Live, our annual online video industry conference that we’re holding in San Francisco tomorrow, Nov. 12th. I’ve been preparing for my conversations with Quincy Smith, the outgoing CEO of CBS Interactive, and Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix. Adobe Systems’ CTO Kevin Lynch is going to chat with Sebastian Rupley, our editor in chief. Expect some fireworks during our conversations about the future of video and video delivery.
Liz Gannes and Chris Albrecht, co-editors of NewTeeVee, have put together an all star line-up of speakers for what promises to be an information- and insight-packed event. They will be talking onstage with (see schedule) senior executives from Adobe Systems, Facebook and YouTube along with folks from Comcast, Microsoft’s XBox Live, CNN Interactive, Cisco, Boxee, Roku and Redbox.
The focus of this year’s conference is on three major themes that will dominate the video industry over the next 12 months: TV Everywhere, Social TV and the Over-the-Top Video. The event will also include a thrilling series of vignettes that will feature products and startups that are building the Next Big Thing. Expect some interesting news to come out of these NBT vignettes.
Lindsay Campbell, ex-host of WallStrip, is going to be our MC for the day. I hope you can join us for the event tomorrow — we still have about 12 tickets left for sale — hopefully you can grab them soon.
We will be giving the attendees of NewTeeVee Live a free copy of our recently released GigaOM Pro research report, “TV Everywhere: Everything You Need To Know.” Others can access the report by subscribing to GigaOM Pro directly.
