GlobeCast’s Emma Brackett To Discss International Trailblazers in OTT at Next TV Summit

Who are the international trailblazers in over-the-top (OTT) television and why are they choosing this method to reach communities in the U.S. and worldwide? These are some of the questions to which Emma Brackett, vice president of consumer video products and services at GlobeCast Americas, will respond as a featured panelist at the Next TV Summit in New York on Thursday, March 21, at Sentry Centers Midtown East, 730 Third Ave.

“International content creators and distributors have always been technological trailblazers, embracing OTT out of necessity,” said Brackett. “In this session, I look forward to exploring the current OTT landscape with my industry colleagues and sharing GlobeCast’s experience as both a service provider and distributor for international content.”

The panel will be moderated by R. Thomas Umstead of Multichannel.com and editor of Multicultural News Sphere. Brackett will join three other panelists in the session: Victor Kong, chief digital officer, The Cisneros Group, owner of broadcast enterprises in numerous Latin American countries as well as the U.S., Spain, and China; Naday Palti, CEO and president, Dori Media Group in Israel; and Tonia O’Connor, president of distribution, sales, and marketing, Univision Communications Inc., with operations in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Mexico.
