VoD and the rise of web-connected TV

With major players like Google and Apple pushing to make TV more interactive, a future where the internet and television are merged would appear to be almost a given.

But it is not just services which are merging in the publishing world.

In the UK, YouView has seen terrestrial broadcasters join-up to deliver a web-connected TV service - does this mark a new way of working and what will be the importance of collaboration in future media output?

In this forum we bring together experts in the video, commercial and technology spheres to take a look at how video publishing is shaping up. We examine what tools are available to support publishers in this field and how media owners are adapting to seismic shifts and preparing for an integrated future. We also examine, importantly, how best tomorrow's VOD can be made to pay.

Does the launch of Connected TV herald a new dawn for publishing?
