The television industry is constantly evolving, and TVOT has certainly evolved with it. Television is now viewed on multiple devices, anywhere, anytime. And apps like Periscope and Meerkat are connecting people from across the globe to instantly share experiences and see the world through each others eyes. Moreover, Virtual Reality is starting to be a truly viable entertainment medium. These are just two examples of how the evolution continues, and a clear demonstration of how exciting it is to watch, said Tracy Swedlow, founder of [itvt] and producer of TVOT. As part of TVOTs own evolution, Im thrilled to introduce a new venue and two new features for attendees: TVOT Story Lab and a dedicated Insights Track. As always, there will be a lot to see, debate and discuss. Were excited to watch.”
