Maximising the Value of Data for TV Services

The availability of data and the way you analyse and protect it will determine winners and losers in the premium video marketplace. This session focuses on the opportunities to use data as a competitive differentiator, including how media firms can become consumer privacy champions and build deeper relationships with viewers. We look at the data collaboration that will protect and grow TV advertising, and how schedules can be improved.
