MEDFORD, N.J.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--StreamingMedia.com announced that Dan Ackerman, senior vice president of programmatic TV for video technology provider Adap.tv, will kick off its annual Streaming Media West Conference and Exhibition, taking place November 19–20 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa, Huntington Beach, Calif.
Adap.tv, now a division of AOL Networks after AOL’s acquisition in September 2013, most recently announced that Adap.tv and AOL’s combined efforts topped comScore’s U.S. Online Video Rankings for September. AOL served up 3.7 billion video ads during the month, the largest number by a single property ever recorded by comScore*.
Ackerman leads a brand-new business group within Adap.tv that is developing innovative programmatic, or automated, technologies that serve the TV and video advertising industries today and in the future, when video has fully converged, regardless of screen. His keynote will focus on the massive shift in video advertising across all screens, particularly how it is bought and sold by advertisers and publishers, and how these changes have necessitated the need for content and media technologies that adapt as quickly as the consumption habits of digital video viewers.
Joining Ackerman during the 2 days of the show will be more than 100 speakers and presenters from Hulu, Starz, A+E Television Networks, Google, Roku, Comcast, YouTube, The Tennis Channel, DIRECTV, Yahoo!, HBO, Vevo, CNN, BBC, LG Electronics, Fox Networks Group, CBS Interactive, and many more. Visit streamingmedia.com/west for the latest list of confirmed speakers.
Now in its 16th year and attended by more than 2,000 executives in 2012, Streaming Media West gives attendees the technical information they need to deploy new products and services, the business insight into new monetization models, and a look at how various content platforms are changing the industry.
