"Broadband Video: What Is the Future?"

Bill Sobel, friend of the PGA NMCe, will be hosting one of his fantastic NY:mieg breakfasts on Thursday, February 28th. If you haven’t been to one of his events, definitely check it out… and this looks to be a good one.

For the first time in history, video content providers have the technical ability to deliver high-quality video directly to their intended audiences, without a business relationship involving a third-party distributor. Our panel of industry veterans will look at the many opportunities and challenges and help define the future of this exciting and ever changing medium.
