They will explore the development of a business case for launching/integrating new solutions, address the organizational and procedural challenges involved, examine how to take insights from data and apply that to the decision-making process, and delve into assessing and implementing new technologies and frameworks.

Gold notes, “As virtual reality and 360-degree immersive video platforms hit the consumer market, media workflows demand new ways to scale and manage rich content. The conference addresses crucial topics facing the companies and teams managing systems and solutions that will define best-in-class operations. I’m honored to share my experiences alongside Mark, Reggie and Bari. It promises to be thought-provoking and enlightening.”
