Here, There, and (TV) Everywhere - CASBAA OTT Summit 2015 Decodes the Over-The-Top Conundrum

HONG KONG, Feb 3, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - CASBAA, the Association for digital multichannel TV, content, platforms, advertising and video delivery throughout the Asia-Pacific, will hold its second annual OTT Summit on Tuesday, March 3 at the Grand Hyatt Singapore.

"After the success of last year's event, we are pleased to be returning to Singapore with the second edition of CASBAA's OTT Summit," said Christopher Slaughter, CEO, CASBAA. "While traditional, linear television is still a major driver for the broadcast industry in the region, we cannot lose sight of the influence and importance of over-the-top (OTT) video services and the impact that these alternate modes of viewing will have on the future of TV."

With recent announcements from such diverse video platforms as Netflix, Amazon and YouTube creating their own original content to compete with themselves and with mainstream broadcasters, OTT services continues to be top of mind among industry stakeholders across the globe.

However, making sense of how OTT fits into existing business models can be puzzling at best when even the very definition of OTT is up for debate.

CASBAA has enlisted an expert field of industry thought leaders to bring clarity to the OTT conundrum with a roster of speakers including James Bridges (Chief Content Operator, iflix), Kelly Cooke (Commercial Director, ESPNSEA/ Head of Digital Media ESPN APAC), Goh Seow Eng (MD of TV, Singtel), Christine Fellowes (MD Asia Pacific, Universal Networks International), Anil Jain (Senior Vice President of Media Group at Brightcove), Kasidit Kolasastraseni (CEO, Primetime TV Thailand), Khush Kundi (Head of Solutions, APAC, Ericsson), John McLellan (Partner, Head of the Commercial & Media and Entertainment Department, Haldanes), James Miner (CEO, MinerLabs), Brendan O'Shaughnessy (GM Sales, South East Asia, Ooyala), Matt Pollins (Associate, Olswang Asia), Michel De Rijk (CEO APAC, Xaxis), Gautam Talwar (VP, Maker Studios), Reuben Verghese (VP Asia, Accedo), Wangxing Zhou (Research Analyst, SNL Kagan), and many others.

Providing an indispensable platform to discuss how OTT is shaping the broadcasting landscape, topics at the CASBAA OTT Summit 2015 will range from programmatic buying to digital advertising, to TV Everywhere and the ongoing threat of online piracy and how OTT has been a game changer as new business models and services continue to grow in the video entertainment space.

Also to be unveiled at the event, the association will release a new report, CASBAA OTT Sentiment Report 2015: An APAC Perspective, which surveys CASBAA members and provides a snapshot of industry opinion in the Asia-Pacific and expectations of OTT for the region. A members' only exclusive, the report will be available for download from

Corporate partners for the CASBAA OTT Summit 2015 include Presenting Sponsor Brightcove, Official Interactive Q&A Partner Ooyala and Sponsors Accedo, Akamai and Irdeto.
