Expanding on the themes of the forum series, Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer at Verimatrix, will host a session on "Converging Networks: Creating a Multi-Network Security Solution" on 7 March 2012 from 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. During the session (#3), which is sponsored by Korean Broadcasting System, Oetegenn will explore why unifying the consumer's multi-screen experience across networks and devices is paramount to the success of advanced service rollouts. His presentation will highlight a revenue security strategy that addresses popular obstacles, and provides a unified multi-network security operation and transparent user experience for the benefit of operators and consumers alike.

Oetegenn will also present a session on "Revenue Optimization Strategies for Multi-network Video" on 9 March 2012 from 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. This session (#10) will highlight best practices for integrating over- the-top (OTT) services with existing broadcast TV offerings; the Quality of Experience (QoE) advantages of adaptive rate streaming (ARS) protocols for broad based OTT services; the role of standards and ecosystems in evaluating adaptive rate streaming solutions; and secured revenue as a key driver for new breeds of service as the market expands from advertising to subscription-based models.

"Multi-network, multi-screen video services are now becoming 'must have' features on the roadmap of competitive video service operators in almost every market that we serve, including Asia Pacific," said Oetegenn. "I look forward to detailing our recent experiences with multi-network deployments at ABU, as I anticipate that this real-world information will be exceptionally valuable for operators currently considering or already planning their multi-network roll-outs."
